Recall that a few weeks ago, Policemen raided the bandits’ camp and killed over 200 of them. Soldiers and Air Force also attacked the bandits a few days ago.

The bandits according to a source believed the Igbabi people were those who gave the security operatives information about their movement and camps.

One one the escapists was a testament to the allusion when he said: ”The bandits were saying in Hausa Language that, the villagers were the ones reporting us to the security.

One of the said: “I don’t live in any of those villages, but people often run from some of the villages to take refuge here.

“The villages have actually been suffering in the hands of the bandits for a long time. They invade the villages and kidnap people unchallenged. That is why they became the first suspects to the bandits.”

Meanwhile, ASP Muhammad Jalige, the Police Command’s Public Relations Officer at Igbabi confirmed the dastardly act but stated that the casualty figure was yet unknown.

While ASP Jalige was still unspecific about the number of people killed. the Hausa Service of the Voice of America in its 6:00 am news bulletin, reported that over 50 persons where killed in the attack.
