Our correspondent reliably gathered that the leader of the PDP thugs whose name was given as Baka Love was killed while one of the APC thugs was shot dead while trying to erect canopies where APC rally was to be held.

Our reporters gathered that due to the serious tension that ravaged Bakura town as a result of security threats, PDP could not hold its rally in Bakura town.

However, the Assistance inspector General of police (AIG), zone 10, Mr. Mohammed Mustapha said that the APC was not authorized to hold any rally yesterday in Bakura Local Government Area of the state.

“PDP has always been a peaceful political party in the country and not only in Zamfara State. So the unaccepted attitude of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state is becoming worrisome,” he lamented.
