Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State on Thursday confirmed the killing of 43 persons in Monday’s bandits attack on Illela Local Government Area of the state.

A statement issued by Tambuwal’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Malam Muhammad Bello, on Thursday said the Governor led members of the state’s executives and the Security Council on a condolence visit to the people of Illela on Wednesday.

Recall that bandits attacked the town and some villages near it in the wee hours on Nov. 15, killing 13 persons in the first instance.

“At the time of the governor’s visit on Wednesday, the death toll had risen to 43,’’ he stated.

Bello explained that the village head of Kalmalo, one of the five villages affected in the midnight attack was wounded.

Other villages affected were Munwadata, Sarma, Runji, and Masasa.

He added that Tambuwal told the people of Illela that the government and people of Sokoto State felt their grief and extended their condolences.

“This is not a small occurrence. It is upsetting. This incident really touched us,’’ he quoted Tambuwal as saying.

Bello further said Tambuwal commended the local government authority, traditional rulers and community leaders for their lawful composition of a volunteer group to work with security operatives in the area.

He added that the governor assured that the state government would constitute joint operations of volunteers who would work under the supervision of security agencies to enhance security in the area.

He appealed to the people not to be daunted by the attacks.
