Bandits Launch Fresh Attack On Katsina Village
Three persons have been reported kidnapped in fresh attacks by bandits on Dan-Ali village in Danmusa Local Government Area of Katsina State.
The attackers also stole money and other valuables in the attack.
The fresh attacks were confirmed to Channels TV by Mallam Tukur Dan Ali, who further said his relative was part of those kidnapped.
He said the bandits, who arrived at the village about 1:25 am on Tuesday, shot sporadically into the air before kidnapping three young persons, including a woman.
“The bandits made several gunshots sporadically and made their way into the houses of Alhaji Musa and Alhaji Gambo where they kidnapped the three persons,” he explained.
He, however, added that the bandits released one of the victims, Hajiya Fatima unconditionally.
According to him, security operatives were yet to arrive in the village even as at 5:30 a.m.
Attempts to confirm the development from the spokesman of the state police command, Gambo Isah, a Superintendent of Police (SP) proved abortive as calls made to his phone were not returned.
