Idris Adam Damari, a former Sole Administrator of Dogon Dawa Development Area in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has been killed by bandits.
It was gathered that the bandits attacked Damari village on Sunday night, shooting indiscriminately.
Several members of the community were also reportedly abducted by the bandits, who stormed the area in large numbers.
An eyewitness added that the bandits took control of three villages of Damari, Kakangi, and Randagi, all in Birnin Gwari and unleashed terror on the villagers.
“They (bandits) attack these villages with impunity,” he said, calling on the government to deploy troops to the area.
He urged the government not to relent in ensuring that their village was safe for living.
The bandits, he said, had yet to reach out to the families of the kidnapped victims.
“The bandits are yet to contact the family of those kidnapped. They stormed the villages on Sunday night, shot indiscriminately and the bullet hit Adam Damari (former Sole Administrator). He was buried on Monday, according to Islamic rites,” he added.
As of the time of filing this report, no official confirmation of the attack from the state or the state police command.
