Breaking news from Zamfara State, where bandits have imposed a staggering levy on three communities under the Zurmi LGA.

According to reports obtained by from Saleeem, the Yan-buki, Kadamutsa, and Dada communities have each been forced to pay a hefty sum of N2 million to the bandits.

The bandits have also demanded an additional 200,000 naira for every polling unit in the area before the Saturday gubernatorial elections can be conducted. This is an unprecedented move by the bandits, and the residents have confirmed that they are under immense pressure to meet these demands.

Banditry and insecurity are on the increase in Zamfara State, which is a worrying development. The government has come under fire for failing to address the issue, and the most recent instance only serves to emphasize how serious it is.
