Nigerians have continued to condemn the killings in Zamfara State as they call on the Federal Government to find a lasting solution to the herdsmen-farmers crisis in the country.

Some concerned individuals took to Twitter on Sunday to decry the rate at which people were killed in the state, saying several lives have been lost since the beginning of the year.

On June 2, 15 people were killed after gunmen invaded Zakuna village in Anka Local Government Area (LGA) of the state while no fewer than 10 others were killed in raids by suspected cattle rustlers on four remote villages barely two weeks later.

However, the Commissioner of Police in Zamfara, Mr Kenneth Ebrimson, told reporters on July 3 that they discovered the bodies of 41 persons suspected to be part of bandits terrorising the villages in the state.
