Katsina State witnessed two separate bandit attacks between Friday and Saturday that claimed the lives of a member of the Katsina Community Watch Corps, KCWC, the father of another member, and two others.
In the Saturday attacks, News Direct learnt that five bandits invaded Unguwar Yayyara village, Danmusa LGA, around 2 am, and targeted the residence of Isa Bawa Yantumaki, a member of KCWC. They killed his father, Malam Suleiman Mai Rake, and stole two cows.
Earlier on Friday, around 5 pm, at Sabuwa Local Government Area of the state, bandits on motorcycles stormed Ungwar Damari village, where they killed one Shehu Armaya’u, a member of KCWC, and two others simply identified as Lawal and Mamuda. According to the source, the late Armay’au secured a two-day off duty and decided to visit his family when he met his end.
These horrific incidents highlight the escalating bandit attacks plaguing the state’s rural areas. Despite efforts by the KCWC and other security agents, the attacks have intensified since the new year.
