Police in the state have confirmed the incident but says troops could not reach out to the scene of the attack as they were not informed in good time due to lack of mobile phone network in the affected areas

The police noted that troops attached to operation Puff Adder II stationed in Magami moved to the locations on foot with a view to forestalling further attacks on neighbouring communities and their response is being awaited to ascertain the level of damage done by the assailants

This development is coming less than twenty-four hours after members of the local vigilante group repelled another bandits attack on Gidan Zuma Community and killed two of the criminals.
