Sokoto Killings, Result Of Insecurity – 32 Get Mass Burial

Sokoto Killings, A Result Of Insecurity in Nigeria and oversight from our leaders.

The Sokoto State Government was reported on Thursday to have held a mass burial on Wednesday for 32 people, who were killed when bandits on motorcycles invaded villages in Rabah Local Government Area of the state. Compared to the neighbouring Zamfara, Sokoto has been peaceful.

A member of the House of Representatives, from Sokoto State, Mr Aminu Shagari, had drawn the attention of the House to the killings, saying that insecurity was worsening in the country.

Shagari told the House that the attackers had earlier written their victims to inform them they were going to invade their communities.

He stated,

Some villages in Rabah Local Government Area of Sokoto State were attacked by bandits, who invaded the villages on Monday, July 9, 2018, in broad daylight, maimed and killed about 32 people and embarked on wanton destruction of property…”

He expressed shock that despite passing a message that they would come, security agencies reportedly did nothing to thwart the attacks.

May their soul rest in peace
