    Illela bandit attack: Gov Tambuwal sympathises with Sokoto communities as death toll rises to 43

     

    Governor Tambuwal

    Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto State, has acknowledged that 43 people were killed in a bandit raid on the state’s Illela Local Government Area on Monday.

    Tambuwal led members of the state executive and security councils, as well as other key government officials, on a condolence visit to the residents of Illela on Wednesday, November 17.

    According to reports, armed bandits assaulted the town and nearby villages in the early hours of Monday, killing 15 people in the first instance.

    Illela bandit attack: Governor Tambuwal condoles Sokoto communities as death toll rises to 43

     

    According to a statement made by Tambuwal’s spokesman, Muhammad Bello, on Thursday, the death toll had increased to 43 at the time of the Governor’s visit on Wednesday afternoon.

    A village head was wounded in one of the five villages attacked during the nocturnal raid, Kalmalo, Munwadata, Sarma, Runji, and Masasa.

    “We’re here too, on behalf of the government and good people of our dear state, to extend our heartfelt condolences on this unfortunate incident which claimed the lives of many of our citizens. This is not a small occurrence. It is upsetting,” he stated, emphasizing that: “this incident really touched us,” Gov Tambuwal told his bereaved audience. 

     

    He praised the local government authorities, monarchs, and community leaders, however, for lawfully forming a volunteer group to operate alongside security officers in the area.

    The state administration, he stated, “would continue to frown upon the formation of illegitimate volunteers,” adding that “the joint activities of properly constituted volunteers, who work closely with and under the oversight of security services, is the appropriate antidote to this situation.”

    He appealed to the people of the area not to be daunted by the recent attack. “Instead, it should motivate you all to redouble your efforts, without seeking revenge, in securing your communities,” he said.

      it is very sad that the supposed governor has nothing to offer other than a half witted apology and condolence
