The Zamfara Police Command, on Tuesday said it had shot dead 13 suspected armed bandits in Talata Mafara Local Government Area of the state on Saturday.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Lawal Abdullahi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau that one policeman also died during the shoot-out, while another sustained injuries.

Abdullahi explained that the incident took place in Jangebe village where the hoodlums were operating.

He said the police stormed the area after a tip off.


“On getting there, the robbers, numbering more than 70 men, engaged the police in a gun battle during which 13 of them were killed,” he said, adding that their corpses had been deposited at the Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital, Gusau.

The spokesman said that policemen were on the trail of the other members of the gang, especially those that escaped with bullet wounds.

He commended the residents for the “timely and useful information” given to the police, saying it had helped in dislodging the bandits.
