Bandits have killed seven people and abducted many others in different attacks on Sokoto communities.
The places attacked were Gidan Kakale, Allela Sutti and Alkasu villages.
At Gidan Kakale, the bandits kidnapped five persons while they killed four and injured three others before kidnapping 17 persons at Alkasu.
They also abducted 13 women and their children at Alela Sutti.
The attacks were said to have taken place between Sunday and Wednesday.
However, the spate of attacks by bandits was said to have degenerated into communal clashes in the communities.
According to our findings, some Fulanis settlements were attacked and burnt by Yan Sakai, resulting in the killing of some of the settlers while many sustained injuries.
The Public Relations Officer of the police in the state, ASP Ahmed Rufa’i, could not confirm the attack, saying he was not yet briefed.
