Abuja, Dec 24 (IBNS): At least 17 people were killed as unidentified gunmen attacked Nigeria's Zamfara state on Saturday, media reports said on Monday.

The attack was carried out on the Magami community, reports said.

Residents told Daily Trust newspaper that dozens of armed men arrived at Magami community on Saturday firing at them indiscriminately.

“They were chasing and shooting people dead on motorbikes, I saw them approaching and I tried to alert the other residents. Some were able to escape the carnage, but others were unfortunate and got trapped and killed,” Ali Hassan, a resident, told the newspaper.

The spokesman of the state police command, SP Muhammad Shehu, told the newspaper the Commissioner of  Police, Usman Belel, had deployed additional one unit of tactical teams comprising PMF/CTU/FSARS to Magami village to complement the efforts of police teams and other sister security services.
