Gunmen abduct 30 people in Katsina communities


Gunmen terrorizing Katsina State have kidnapped no fewer than 30 persons from Dandume community in Katsina State in the early hours of Wednesday, December 30.

The gunmen numbering dozens were said to have trekked into the villages, shooting and shouting at the top of their voices simultaneously.

They were reported to have invaded the communities of Garin Albasu, Ilalar Gangare and Unguwar Sallah in Dandume Local Government.

A resident of one of the communities, Garin Albasu, Sadisu Rabe, was quoted as saying said

”They stormed our village around 1 am and abducted more than 20 people including women and children.

“My younger brother is among those kidnapped and we are yet to hear from the abductors whether they are demanding for ransom or not. Most of the surrounding villages have been attacked with people kidnapped and animals rustled”

The gunmen reportedly also invaded the Ilalar Gangare and Unguwar Sallah and abducted six and four people from both communities respectively.

Katsina state police command is, however, yet to confirm the attack..
