The league of bandits operating between Sokoto and Zamfara States have requested to be held responsible for the attack visited on Goronyo Market in Sokoto. The attack which led to the destruction and death of 49 villagers, was said to be a reprisal.

One of the criminals shares an intimate and cordial relationship with Kachallah Turji and Halilu Sububu, the duo who are notorious warlords in the area. Sheu Rekeb disclosed how the attack was calculated and visited, in order to avenge killings of innocent Fulani in the area.

Journalists earlier revealed the attack to be a joint one, as the attackers stormed the markets with not less than 100 motorcycles.

They converged round, opened fire on buyers and sellers. This led to the death of many.

“We heard those who attacked Goronyo being described as criminals. They were not.”

“The president (Muhammadu Buhari) came out to say so. Those people (of Goronyo) have killed so many people, so they would have to be attacked and killed,” he said.

Citing the killing of some Fulani Muslim worshippers at Unguwar Lalle, Rekeb said, “When those people (Fulani) were killed, the president did not say anything but he is now coming out to react to this one.”

A resident had on Monday told journalists that, “The recent attack could be a misplaced reprisal by ‘Yan Sakai’ because of the recent killing of 11 herders at Mamande Market in Gwadabawa Local Government Area.
