Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has revealed that suspected bandits operating in the eastern senatorial district of Sokoto state have killed fifteen people in two separate attacks in Goronyo and Illela local government areas.

The Governor confirmed the killings shortly before presenting the state 188 billion 2022 appropriation bill to the state house of Assembly on Monday.

He said twelve persons were killed in Illela and three others in Goronyo between Sunday evening and Monday morning.

The Governor however consoled with the people of the affected communities and the state in general over the unfortunate development.

However, efforts to get the reaction of the Nigerian Police, Sokoto State command proved abortive as the spokesman, AP Sanusi Abubakar, could not be reached at the time of filling this report.
