SP Shehu noted that the attack on Janbako community was aggravated by the continued operation of members of the outlawed “Yansakai” group despite its proscription by the state government, pointing out that the outlawed group is fast becoming a nuisance to the peaceful stability of Zamfara State.

The police spokesman noted that the Commissioner of Police Zamfara State, CP Abutu Yaro while commiserating with the families of the deceased assured that a discreet investigation will be conducted with a view to arresting the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
