JUST IN: Ceaseless All-Night Gunshots in Zaria
Residents of the areas between Birnin Gwari and Abuja Road, especially the part of the border adjourning the bush, in Zaria, Kaduna state could not afford to sleep Friday night as ceaseless gunshots rent the air all through the night.
“Somewhere behind ABU Staff Quarters, adjourning Wusasa and streaching to Birnin Gwari. That’s where all these gunshots are coming from”, said a resident in a short phone call around 1:30am.
A resident who did not want to be mentioned sent an urgent sms to Nigerian Sketch around 2:00am to say that they were confused as to what was happening.
“It’s 1:29am, continuous shots, AK47 or so. We pray for good news by morning…”, he wrote.
Nigerian Sketch’s check Saturday morning revealed that the area was quite. Noone has come out. Phone calls to some residents went unanswered.
Our reporter said “everyone was indoors and afraid of making calls for security reasons.”
Hassan Abba, a resident, told our reporter that the neighborhood was notorious for armed robbery and kidnapping.
“This is the area that continues to Birnin Gwari, and you know Birnin Gwari is known already for these vices”, he said.
