“They (bandits) attacked at about 6:30pm and killed five heads of households. They also carted away valuables, that’s why our people came out to protest,” a surviving resident narrated.

“As we speak our village has been sacked, no single human being lives there again. We have abandoned everything to stay alive,” another resident added.

Authorities have confirmed the incident, saying two other villages under Kurfi; Lambo and Guda have also been sacked by the terrorists.

The Commissioner for Homeland Security, Nasir Babangida Ma’azu said terrorists had intensified attacks in the area.

He said, “During the first raid the bandits went from house-to-house hunting for those to kidnap. On their second visit, they burnt down the police station, forcing the residents to run for their lives.”
