Dangwere went on to say that they had heard rumors that the bandits had traveled through other communities, and as a result, locals began to flee their homes for fear of being attacked.

“We’ve been hearing that they’ve been following here or there,” he said, “so people began to flee the communities until they came and attacked.”

“They passed through other villages, and people from other villages saw them. They had to run for their lives while also making phone calls to others in villages ahead of them to warn them that the bandits were approaching.

“I wasn’t at home when I got the call that the bandits were heading near Nasko, so I told my family to go to Salka.”

Bala Kuryas, the Commissioner of Police, confirmed the attack, claiming that the bandits had strayed into Nasko from Kebbi State.

The DPO and six other individuals were killed in the incident, according to the Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs, and Internal Security, Emmanuel Umar.
