Bandits have ambushed a vehicle escorting travellers in Zamfara and in the process killed one policeman.
The incident occurred on Monday when the vehicle was coming from Dansadau community to Gusau with the passengers inside.
A resident of the community, Nuhu Dansadau expressed concern about the situation saying that armoured vehicles have been the only source of protection for travellers in the last few weeks between the two major towns.
He called on the government to take all necessary steps to curtail the activities of bandits in the area.
Efforts to reach the state police command was not successful as the Public Relations Officer was not responding to several phone calls put across to him.
Dansadau is about 99 kilometers from the Zamfara state capital, Gusau.
Schools in Zamfara have been targets of attacks by bandits.
In recent times, Zamfara State has not been spared by bandits’ attack.
