30 Feared Dead, Others Injured As Bandits Attack Two Katsina LGAs


Thirty people are feared dead following fresh multiple attacks by armed bandits on several villages in Dutsinma and Safana local government areas (LGAs) of Katsina State.

Dutsinma and Safana are two of the frontline LGAs where activities of bandits have been on the increase despite security agencies and government interventions to decimate insurgency in the areas.

Eyewitnesses told Channels Television on Friday that the affected villages, thirteen in number, were attacked in the evening hours of Tuesday 4th June 2024.

They identified the villages as Dogon Ruwa, Sabon Gari Unguwar Banza, Tashar Kawai Mai Zurfi, Sanawar Kurecen Dutsi, Unguwar Bera, Kurecin Kulawa, Larabar Tashar Mangoro, Sabaru, Ashata, Unguwar Ido, Kanbiri, Kunamawar Mai Awaki and Kunamawar ‘Yargandu.

The eyewitnesses further revealed that the multiple attacks frightened most of the residents who have now migrated to safer communities and areas like Dutsinma.

“As I am talking to you now, even yesterday, we learned that the hoodlums carried out another attack on several other vulnerable villages such as Lezumawa, ‘Yar Kuka, Rimi, and Dogon Ruwa villages,” the source said.

When contacted, the spokesman of the Katsina Police Command, Abubakar Sadiq, said the incident in Dutsinma LGA. He, however, promised to get back with the details of the Safana LGA attack.

“Yes it is true but I don’t have the details of the Safana LGA’s incident. I will get back to you shortly please,” he assured.
