A community leader in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna state, Zubar Abdurra’uf, said the Ansaru terrorists group have taken over some communities and are protecting the residents from attacks by armed bandits.
He made the assertions on national television while speaking on the security situation in Kaduna state.
Abdurra’uf, who is also a former Head of Kaduna State Media Corporation, said the terrorists ride on motorcycles in military uniforms across the communities and some of the residents feel secure having them around to help fight against those he called bandits in the forest.
He listed the areas where they are prominent as the eastern part of Birnin Gwari and some part of Giwa Local Government Area, notably in six wards, namely; Kidandan, Galadimawa, Katarge, Yaka Wada and to some extent Bangoya”.
His comments came barely a week after Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai, during a security briefing, raised the alarm that Boko Haram and Ansaru terrorists are now in forests across the state.
