30 Killed in Bandit Attacks on Katsina Communities

67

In a devastating series of attacks, bandits have killed at least 30 people across multiple villages in Katsina State. The assaults targeted communities in Dutsinma and Safana local government areas, leaving a trail of death and destruction.

ASP Abubakar Aliyu, the Katsina State Public Relations Officer, confirmed the tragic events on Friday. The affected villages include Tashar Kawai Mai Zurfi, Sabon Gari Unguwar Banza, Dogon Ruwa, Sanawar Kurecen Dutsi, Unguwar Bera, Kuricin Kulawa, Larabar Tashar Mangoro, Sabaru, Ashata, Unguwar Ido, Kanbiri, Kunamawar Mai Awaki, and Kunamawar ‘Yargandu. The bandits launched their brutal attacks on Tuesday, taking the lives of many residents.

In response to the violence, ASP Aliyu stated, “The Command, in collaboration with all relevant stakeholders, is intensifying efforts to ensure the arrest of the perpetrators of this dastardly act. Additional security measures are being implemented to prevent further occurrences of such situations. Further developments will be communicated in due course.” He also apologized for being at a workshop during the press release.

VMT reports that these attacks have caused widespread panic, forcing residents to flee their homes in search of safety. Many have sought refuge in nearby Dutsinma town and Turare village.

The recent surge in banditry in Katsina State has raised concerns over the effectiveness of current security measures. Residents are calling for immediate and decisive action from authorities to restore peace and ensure the safety of their communities. As the state mourns the loss of lives, the government and security agencies face increased pressure to address the escalating violence and bring the perpetrators to justice.
