Three persons were killed when bandits invaded a market in Tsafe town, headquarters of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

An eyewitness who spoke to Channels TV said the bandits stormed the market around 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 21, 2024 and opened fire on those at the market.

“The bandits entered around 11 a.m. and started shooting indiscriminately towards the people at the market. The DPO of Tsafe gathered his officers on duty and locked the police station, preventing people from entering the place for shelter,” the witness said.

The spokesperson for the State Police Command, ASP Yazid Abubakar, who confirmed the attack to the publication said security operatives including the military and police have engaged the bandits and have brought normalcy to the area.

“Yes, there was an incident this morning in Tsafe, the bandits entered the town, and there were casualties, but I can’t confirm the figures now. I’m still waiting for the DPO of Tsafe to give a full situation report but what I can confirm to you now is that the military and the police engaged the terrorists in gun battle and the area is calm now,” the PPRO added.

Residents also confirmed that the troops of Operation Hadarin Daji deployed to Tsafe engaged the bandits in a gun duel which forced them to retreat to the forest.  (
