On December 8, residents of some villages complained about an influx of bandits in some of Wase LGA’s villages, which raised suspicions about their movement.

Residents who expressed concern also claimed that local informants were working with the bandits to provide them with information about the area.

While confirming the latest attack that resulted in the loss of life, Wase youth leader Shapi’i Sambo described the incident as barbaric and unfortunate.

He explained that the gunmen stormed the market and began shooting indiscriminately, wreaking havoc on the area.

According to a source, the area has been invaded by gunmen in the last ten days, resulting in the kidnapping of many people and the payment of a ransom.

“The ransom demanded by the bandits is in the millions of dollars. They sometimes collect N2 million, and other times they collect N5 million. They collected N5 million in the last three days before releasing a man they kidnapped a few days ago,” he said.
