Tragic Bandit Attack in Zamfara Leaves Seven Brave Soldiers Feared Dead

Seven Soldiers Killed in Bandit Ambush in Zamfara State

Tragic incident as bandits strike again, this time claiming the lives of seven soldiers in an ambush. The Kangon Garacce community in the Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara was attacked on Monday afternoon, resulting in the deaths of several residents.

A resident of Dangulbi community, Lawal Dangulbi, revealed that the troops were responding to a distress call regarding the attack when they fell into the bandits’ trap. “The bandits divided themselves, some attacking the community while others stationed outside to prevent military assistance. They ambushed the troops and killed seven of them,” Dangulbi said.

The attack also took the lives of at least twenty residents of the community, according to reports. The Nigerian Army authorities in Zamfara State have yet to comment on the incident.

Although details are still emerging, a security source who wished to remain anonymous confirmed the attack, stating that seven officers of the Nigerian Army lost their lives during the ambush.

Zamfara State is among the areas most affected by banditry, along with Kaduna, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, and Sokoto. These regions regularly suffer from bandit attacks, including mass abductions for ransom. Bandits operate hidden camps within vast forests that span across the North-West and Central Nigeria.

Despite the efforts of security agencies and state governments, these gunmen continue to inflict havoc, resulting in numerous casualties.
