Dauran confirmed that Thursday’s attack left some soldiers and the
attackers dead, while those injured were admitted in Federal Medical
Center, Gusau for proper medical attention.
According to him, the attackers were from Niger state.
“Following the good relationship and understanding established with
the bandits which led to their repentance in Zamfara, I can assure you
that those attackers are not from Zamfara.
“Immediately after the attack, we reached out to the Fulani leaders
in the state who confirmed to us that none of their members
participated, but we have summoned a meeting with them to forestall a
reoccurance,” he said.
Some eye witnesses who spoke to NAN on condition of anonymity, said
the bandits that attacked the joint security outpost numbered over 200,
