Man killed in Zamfara for not allowing daughter marry bandit

A man has been killed by bandits in Kwalfada village in the Tsafe Local Government Area in Zamfara State for not allowing his daughter to marry a bandit.

An indigene of the village, Mallam Rabo, spoke to newsmen that one of the bandits proposed marriage to one of the girls in the village but her father refused.

The father, according to Rabo, decided to give his daughter to one of the men in the village instead of the bandit.

Rabo said, “After the marriage was contracted, the bandits invaded the community and killed the father of the girl.

“They also asked the husband of the girl to divorce her so that their colleague could marry her.

“They threatened to kill the husband if he did not comply with the directive.

“The husband immediately divorced the wife and she was remarried to the bandit who took her to the forest.”

Rabo lamented that the bandits had been terrorising the community for a long time and no action was taken by the authorities to provide security for the inhabitants.

He said that the bandits imposed N4m levy on the village a few weeks ago.
