Again, Gunmen Invade Buhari’s Home State, Adopt Village Head, Nineteen Others

LAGOS DECEMBER 10TH (NEWSRANGERS)-At least, 20 people, mostly males, including a village head, Malam Falalu Galadima, have been kidnapped in Katsina State by suspected bandits.

According to HumAngle, the villages- Gamji, Ungwar Mato and another all in Faskari Local Government were attacked by the gunmen who operated for about three hours on Tuesday.

The bandits, it was gathered, trekked down to the Gamji village, unlike their previous attacks in which they came on motorbikes.

One of the villagers, who did not want to be named for his safety, said he escaped into the bush when the gang came.

He told the newspaper that the bandits stormed the village around 10 pm on Tuesday and opened fire on the residents, kidnapped the village head and 25 others.

“No one can tell exactly the number of the people they abducted; we all know that they abducted the village Head and many others,” he said.

“We checked from house-to-house this morning and found out that 25 of our people are in their custody now,” said another villager who spoke without mentioning his name for security reasons.

“They came like people who migrated from somewhere else, heavily armed and covered their faces.”

“Two of my younger brothers are in their custody now; one of them is a law student in Yenagoa Law School while the other one is a graduate of Civil Engineering from Bayero University Kano,” he continued.
