Bandits Sack Seven Villages In Kebbi, Sokoto States

According to reports, in recent attacks between the boundaries of the neighbouring states, bandits ransacked at least seven communities in Sokoto and Kebbi States.

In a statement released on Monday, Alhaji Yakubu Ahmed-BK, the commissioner for information and culture of Kebbi State, verified this and said that those displaced had sought refuge in Jarkuka, a hamlet in the state’s Arewa Local Government Area.

According to, Ahmed-BK made a note of this yesterday when distributing aid to Sokoto and Kebbi state residents who had been the victims of bandit assaults.

“We are in this village on behalf of His Excellency, Gov. Nasir Idris, to distribute relief materials to displaced victims of bandits’ attacks.

“The Governor, upon receiving the news of the attack around this axis of border villages between Kebbi and Sokoto state, swung into action.

“We have a situation where thousands of displaced persons from the attacked areas trooped into this village and other surrounding villages for safety,” the commissioner said.

He added: “The relief materials include thousands bags of millet, rice and beans as well as mats, detergents, buckets, and seasoning among others, as emergency measures to ameliorate the suffering of these people.”

Ahmed-BK said though the victims were largely from Sokoto State, “yet, as government of the people, by the people and for the people, the Governor directed that all the affected victims be treated equally”.
