Armed Bandits have killed not less than 49 people during an attack at a market in the Goronyo local government area of Sokoto State.
It was gathered that on Sunday evening armed bandits stormed Goronyo town and rounded up villagers in the market and opened fire on them.
One of the villagers told SaharaReporters that residents have fled the community following the insecurity in the area.
The source said: “Gunmen on Sunday evening killed at least 49 at Goronyo town of Sokoto State.
“The incident happened yesterday evening on the market day of the town. The gunmen rounded up people in the market while it was full of activities and started opening fire randomly. The town is now deserted.”
KanyiDaily had recently reported how angry youths burnt down the house of Sokoto Commissioner for allegedly conniving with bandits.
