A group of some Zamfara communities has written President Bola Tinubu over incessant bandit attacks within the Kaura Namoda and the neighbouring areas in the Zamfara North Senatorial District.
In the open letter speaking for the residents, the group called Zamfara Circle Community Initiatives (Kaura Namoda Coordinating Unit), urged the President and the State Governor, Dauda Lawal, to do anything within their powers to stop the attacks.

The letter dated October 19, 2023, added that if no action is taken, the recurring bandit attacks will not only result in the continuous loss of lives and property in the area, but could also have attendant economic and social consequences on the entire Zamfara North Senatorial District and the state in general.
The group said the aggression by bandits has strangulated educational and economic activities within their communities, adding that commuters are at risk of being kidnapped while many residents are held hostage in kidnappers’ den.
