Katsina: Bandits Kill 7 Farmers

At least seven farmers, including a nursing mother, have been killed by bandits that invaded three villages — Tashar Bama, Dogun Muazu and Unguwar Maigayya—of Sabuwa Local Government Area of Katsina State.

The attack was coming barely hours after members of the Boko Haram terrorists group beheaded about 43 farmers in Zabarmari village, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.

Ibrahim Danjuma Machika the lawmaker representing the area at the state House of Assembly, confirmed the killing during the plenary session on Monday, while sponsoring a motion on the need to reinforce security in some of the villages in his constituency.

Machika, said the incident occurred weekend in a broad daylight adding that about 30 other villagers were abducted during the attack.

“Our people now live in fear as the bandits now carry out attacks in our villages in broad daylight. They kill the people, cart away their property and kidnap as many people as they can

“There is no day bandits don’t attack one community or another and the people no longer sleep in their houses,” Machina said.

Also members representing Dutsinma constituency, Mohammed Khamis, and Safana constituency, Abduljalal Haruna Runka, added that attacks by bandits across a number of other communities in the state had become worrisome and alarming.

The Speaker, Tasiu Zango, in response directed the Clerk of the House to forward the position of the members on the need to reinforce security in parts of the communities to the governor.
