Bandits have displaced residents of approximately 10 communities in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State due to incessant attacks and kidnapping.

Most villagers have relocated to safer communities within the local government area while others have moved to Zaria LGA.

Reports gathered from one of the leaders in the affected communities, Malam Jafaru Anguwar Salahu, that the villagers, mostly farmers, are now living in their new environment as internally displaced persons (IDPs).

He listed the displaced communities to include Sabon Gida, Anaba, Anguwar Salahu, Guberawa, Garu, Rafin Iwa, Gidanduki, Anguwan Najaja, Kunza, and Anguwan Magaji.

“All these villages I mentioned used to have people, but now we were all displaced from our houses and farms. As we speak, we are now living as refugees in Gwada ward and other villages.

“We are only living, but we don’t know what to do,” he said.

He further called on the state government to kindly come to their aid by making the villages bandits-free to enable them to return to their homes and continue farming.
