Terrorists attack Zamfara, escapees die in boat accident


At least 18 women and children have drowned in  Zamfara state after their boats capsized as a gang of kidnappers opened fire on them.

The 18 were among dozens of people trying to escape an attack by the gunmen on the village of Birnin Wajje in the Bukkuyum area.

According to locals, the attackers shot dead at least six people and kidnapped seven other villagers before opening fire on the those fleeing on two boats.

The shooting caused something of a stampede on the boats, which then tipped over, the residents explained.

Another resident said,

“As I am talking to you now, we have recovered their dead bodies and we will soon bury them”.
