In a disturbing new attack, armed bandits stormed the village of Tilli in Kebbi state, killing two people and abducting three others.
The Kebbi state police command has dispatched personnel to the scene and expressed its condolences to the district head of Tilli village, the council chairman, and the state assembly member representing the area.
Kebbi state has been plagued by banditry and violence in recent months, with multiple attacks on villages and towns. This latest attack highlights the ongoing security crisis in the state and the need for increased security measures.
Police Commissioner Chris Wane has vowed to track down the perpetrators of the attack and rescue the kidnapped victims. He emphasized the police's determination to combat criminal elements, calling the attack "unprovoked" and an "attempt to undermine the efforts of security agencies," which will not be tolerated.
This statement sends a strong message to criminals that their actions will not be tolerated and that law enforcement is working hard to keep the public safe.
