Bandits Kill DPO In Zamfara

A Divisional Police Officer in Maru town, Maru Local Government area of Zamfara State, SP Kazeem Raheem, was reportedly killed by bandits in the early hours of Saturday, March 4.

The DPO was killed by bandits alongside a yet-to-be-identified police sergeant and a vigilante.

A source from the community told DAILY POST that bandits were in the area purposely to kidnap Alhaji Ilisayu, a businessman.

The bandits had, according to the source, kidnapped Ilisayu’s brother, who was reportedly freed after a ransom was paid, but they (bandits) came back to kidnap him but he managed to escape, while his wife was abducted.
