The casualty figure from Sunday’s attack on communities in Giwa and Igabi local government areas of Kaduna state is over fifty, according to reports given to the governor by the locals.
Nasir El Rufai today, visited the invaded communities which include Kerewa, Ungwan Musa and Zariyawa among others.
He says but for the intervention by security personnel on land and in the air, the situation would have been worse.
El Rufai says his government is not and will never negotiate with bandits. He advocates their prompt elimination when they are identified. The locals say the bandits came on Sunday morning heavily armed.
