While Zamfara Gov. Bello Matawalle is mocking bandits pleading for fresh amnesty deals as the military pounds them in the forest, there’s some sad news on the military side, too.
Bandits attacked a military base in Mutuni, Dabsadau 10 pm Saturday, killing no fewer than 12 officers, injuring others, carting away weapons, according to an exclusive by the People’s Gazette.
Officials immediately confirmed nine Nigerian Air Force officers, two police officers and one Nigerian Army soldier dead.
The online news said all slain personnel were evacuated to Yerima Bakura Specialist Hospital in Gusau and the three wounded have been receiving treatments at a brigade medical facility, officials said.
There has been no official refutation or confirmation of the report by the military authority.
