“They shot at the travelers, at a place not more than 5 km from where they abducted people on Sunday.”

” People were running helter-skelter, although security agents came to the scene  ,but the bandits had already went away into the bush with many travellers.”

“A whole bus, 18 seater from Zamfara was left empty. Also ,a Toyota  and other vehicles I saw  were hit with bullets ,left without occupants,” he said.

Official reaction from either the police or state government on this attack, is still being awaited.
