It remains unclear what the motives of the gunmen are but the Zamfara state governor, Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar has labeled the attack an “act of terrorism”.

Armed gangs have become rife in Zamfara in recent years and even army presence in the region has done very little to put an end to the attacks.
