Three persons were killed by suspected bandits at Kurawa village in Sabon Birni local government area of Sokoto state.
It was gathered that the attack took place a few hours after Governor Aminu Tambuwal left the area.
Tambuwal was said to have been in Sabon Birni to commiserate with the families of the travellers burnt to death by bandits along Sabon Birni-Isa road on Monday.
The Daily Reality gathered that the bandits raided the village around 8 pm on Thursday, shooting intermittently.
“They came during late-night prayer, shooting sporadically. They killed three of our people and injured several others who are currently in the hospital,” a resident said.
The attempt to hear from the spokesman of the Sokoto Police Command, ASP Sanusi Abubakar, was fruitless.
