Zamfara State has been a hotbed of killings and kidnappings. The media is awash with daily reportage of these incidents. These casualities are fathers, mothers, sons and daughters who have been gruesomely uprooted from their families.
SEVENTY-SEVEN-year-old Mallam Risqua Mohammed buried his two sons on the same day. It was a hot afternoon of January 26, 2019. The graves of the two brothers were still fresh, just as the dampness caused by their blood on the brown soil of Bambara Village.
