Gunmen kill Sister To Senator Marafa, Abduct Husband In Zamfara
Bandits have killed Ade Marafa, elder sister of the senator representing Zamfara Central, Kabir Marafa, and abducted her husband.
An aide to the senator, Abubakar Tsafe, who confirmed the development, said the bandits struck at the residence of the senator’s sister located in the Ruwan Bore area of Gusau Local Government Area, yesterday.
The aide said the bandits, numbering about 100, set the village ablaze after raiding it.
“More than half of Ruwan Bore village has been burnt by the bandits. The villagers are now seeking refuge at Mada, a neighbouring community,” he said in a statement.
Tsafe said at the time of issuing the statement, the senator’s in-law had not been found.
The senator has, on many occasions, expressed concern about the high level of insecurity in the state.
In November, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered a military crackdown on the bandits but the killings have continued unabated.
Due to the overwhelming activities of the bandits, Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari, said he was no longer the chief security officer of the state because he had no control over security machinery.
“As chief security officer, the nomenclature is just a name,” Yari had said.
