Six die as bandits, vigilante clash in Zamfara

Six bandits have died in another clash between them and members of a vigilante group in Zamfara state.

The clash occurred near Yan Waren Daji of Tsafe Local Government.

An eyewitness and resident of the village, Alhaji Musa Daji, who spoke to journalists on Friday said many residents are now fleeing to Tsafe, the headquarters of the local government, for safety.

He said some residents of the village had mobilised themselves last Wednesday to attack the bandits’ in their hideout.

Six bandits were allegedly killed.

Daji further explained that this action might have provoked the bandits who “sent a message calling on the village head to leave before Friday,” the reason for the panic in the community.

He appealed to the security to intensify their patrol in the community in order to save the people from the attacks saying “we have really suffered in the last three weeks. ”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Muhammad Shehu confirmed the attack but said he was yet to get the report on people that were killed or their number.

Shehu, however, said peace and normalcy had returned to the village as the command had deployed its officers and men to restore peace, while investigation into the matter had commenced.

As a result of the clashes the state government had in December 2016 initiated a dialogue among the warring groups.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
