Suspected bandits have set ablaze the house of the Speaker of Zamfara State House Of Assembly, Nasiru Muazu
The House is said to be among several others raised in Magarya Community, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
The Chairman of the Committee on Security and Prosecution of Bandits in Zamfara State, Abdullahi Shinkafi who confirmed the development, says the invasion of the Magarya community was a result of the security operatives current offensive against the bandits in various camps.
“…The military and other security agencies’ onslaught against the bandits in Zamfara State is provoking retaliation by the bandits…”
“…This is evident in the bandits setting ablaze Magarya community in Zurmi Local Government Area of the state…”
Shinkafi did not disclose whether lives were lost during the invasion and the burning down of the Magarya community by the bandits, who are currently on the run from military airstrike and land onslaught.
The ZSHA speaker’s family has come under heat as his biological father and stepmother and six others who were abducted a few months ago and are still in captivity.
