Two days ago, Thursday, March 25, 2021, some bandits strolled into Dunkawa Village in Sabon Birni Local Government Area of Sokoto State in broad daylight.
While the villagers scampered for safety, the bandits were said to have assured them that they were not in their community for any attack that day.
They however told them that Nigerian government has no capacity to save them from attacks; and that the only way for them to be safe is for the government to grant them (bandits) general amnesty as well as place them on monthly allowances.
They told the villagers that they won’t stop attacking communities in the area, unless the Federal Government of Nigeria grant their request.
Sources told us that the bandits, who arrived the village with sophisticated weapons, boasted that no one can help or save the villagers, unless their demands were met.
