Gunmen kill nine soldiers in Zamfara village

Suspected gunmen on Thursday killed nine soldiers in Sunke village in Anka local government area of Zamfara state.

Reports said the dozens of unidentified gunmen arrived on motorcycles, firing at the soldiers and policemen stationed at the community.

Sunke community is just 30 km south of Anka town, the local government headquarters.
However, highly placed sources within state government said that the attack was retaliation on the earlier killings of repentant bandits by the soldiers in recent time.

“Soldiers killed some of the repentant bandits and they vowed to avenge the attacks. The repentant bandits mobilized their men and raided the army formation in the village,” the source added.
