No fewer than 26 Fulani have been killed by the outlawed volunteer group, popularly known as Yansakai group, at Tungar Wabi hamlet under Dangulbi district of Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State yesterday.

A resident of Wabi village told journalists in Gusau via a telephone chat that the Yansakai group had organised themselves with their counterpart group from Kebbi State and launched attack on the victims.

He said the group, during the attack had made away with some cattle belonging to the victims.
