Zamfara State Government says it has distributed N10 million cash and 600 bags of rice to victims of bandits’ attack in Damri Community of Bakura Local Government Area.
The Acting Governor, Senator Hassan Nasiha, who doubles as the Deputy Governor, said this while addressing the people of the community on Monday.
He said government is disappointed that such attacks are still taking place despite efforts to end banditry and all forms of violence in the state.
He advised residents to come up with self-protection measures to protect their lives and properties, urging them to remain extra vigilant to forstall these attacks.
The acting Governor however warned against becoming a threat against anybody or group.
