From Abba Abubakar Kabara, Gusau
Some overzealous volunteer security men (Yan Sa Kai) have over attacked and killed four innocent Fulani herdsmen in Bawa Ganga village of Tsafe local government.
Those killed include Abubakar Buda, Halilu Buda, Tukur Buda all brothers of the same father and one Ilya Duma.
It could be recalled that a few days ago, Governor Abdulaziz Yari announced an executive order to recruit 8, 500 volunteer security men to assist in fighting the challenges of killer bandits across the state.
The Triumph reliably learnt that, immediately after the recruitment order announced by the governor, many of the volunteers begun to act ahead of their formal engagements by taking up machetes and other similar weapons to swing into action.
A close relation to the deceased, Mallam Lawali Madaha who spoke to this medium, narrated that the deceased were driving their cattle back home from Dajin Magami where they spent the usual one year annual grazing period.
He said at a location along their route called Bawa Ganga, the deceased met their fate when a group of such volunteers suddenly appeared and fiercely attacked and killed all of them, leaving the cattle without shepherds.
He expressed his deep regret that up to this moment, apart from participating in the collection of the deceased’s bodies to their community for burial, “there is still no any show of concern from either the security agents or the state government”, he lamented.
Several phone calls to get the police comment from the Command’s spokesman SP Shehu Muhammad did not yield result.
