Bandits in Zamfara have written nine communities in Bukkuyum Local Government Area of the state demanding N24 million levy or risk being attacked.
Reacting, the state police command said the issue is old and not recent.
According to the police spokesperson in the state, Mohammed Shehu, “This is an old issue and when the command got an information that the bandits have written letters to the nine communities, we acted quickly and sent security personnel to those villages.
“It is never true that, the said letters were sent to those villages after the bandit attacks on some communities in Anka and Bukkuyum local government areas.
“The letters were sent more than a month ago and the police command has since addressed that issue,” Shehu said.
