El-Rufai vows to wipe out bandits as death toll from weekend attack rises to 51

By our reporter| Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai on Monday vowed to wipe out bandits in the state as the death toll from Sunday’s communities attack rises to 51.

The governor who made the vow during a visit to some of the affected villages on Monday, insisted that his administration will not succumb to granting the bandits amnesty.

He assured the villagers that troops of the Nigerian military will be stationed in the villages to provide adequate security.

The villagers while responding, informed the governor that the bandits are believed to have come from Katsina state to attack them.

It will be recalled that bandits attacked some villages in Igabi and Giwa local government areas in what seems like revenge against the villagers who they accused of providing information to security agencies.
