Bandits on Wednesday morning attacked the Gidangizo village in the Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State and shot dead one Nasiru Alilu, 37.

It was learnt that the bandits stormed Gidangizo on motorcycles about 12.30 a.m. and ransacked houses in the community.

Residents said the assailants also injured four persons and kidnapped two sisters, Amina Mudi, 23; and Zainaru Mudi, 20.

Alilu was said to have been killed when the bandits entered his house and demanded money which he said he did not have. He was said to have been shot at close range.


One of the residents said, “The bandits were more than twelve and they were fully armed. They came on motorcycles. They killed Alilu because he was arguing with them that he had no money on him when they asked for money. He was shot at close range.

“The bandits were going from house to house. At Alhaji Mudi’s house, they abducted his two daughters and took them away. Several people were also injured by the bandits.”

The Spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, Gambo Isah, confirmed the incident.

He said, “The bandits were at the village and they killed one thirty-seven-year-old man whose name was given as Nasiru Alilu. They also abducted two ladies, Zainaru Alhaji Mudi, 20 and Amina Alhaji Mudi, 23. Four persons were injured in the attack.”
