Following the withdrawal of security personnel stationed in Maganda village, Nagaji Gari Ward lll in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, residents of the village have started abandoning their ancestral homes for fear of the unknown.

Some villagers are said to have fled due to fear of potential attacks by bandits who have been terrorising the communities for years.

According to a source, the security personnel deployed to protect the villagers left the area last Saturday without prior notice, causing confusion among the locals.

He explained, “A resident of the area and a former councillor who evacuated his wife and children from the community, said as soon as the security personnel left, the bandits invaded the community, going from house to house to collect people’s phones and money without facing any challenges.”
