BANDITS OVERRUN MILITARY BASE IN ZAMFARA, KILL 12 SECURITY PERSONNEL



Armed bandits on Saturday invaded a Nigerian military base in Zamfara, killing not less than 12 security personnel.


Eons Intelligence gathered that the assailants stormed the base in Mutumji, Dansadau, about 80 kilometers south of the capital Gusau, at about 10:30 am on Saturday.


The fatalities comprise nine Nigerian Air Force officers, two police officers and one Nigerian Army soldier. It was not immediately clear the level of fire that the soldiers returned to prevent the base from being sacked.


Sources say the attackers also seized weapons and set ablaze other equipment in the facility.


The deceased were evacuated to Yerima Bakura Specialist Hospital in Gusau and the three wounded have been receiving treatments at a brigade medical facility.
