Village head, 4 children killed as tragic bandit attack claims several lives in Katsina community

A fresh attack by suspected bandits has left ten persons killed and several others wounded at Kukar Babangida village in the Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State in the early hours of Thursday.

Among those killed were the Kukar Babangida Village Head, Zauren Katsina, along with his four biological children.

Residents told Channels Television that the bandits invaded the village in the early hours of 1:30 am when most residents were deeply asleep.

It was gathered that about 6,000 persons, mostly farmers and herders, are inhabiting this particular village.

“Even within the week, two bandits attacks were recorded in the Jibia Local Government Council.

“One of the attacks was launched along the Jibia-Batsari axis, and the other attack was carried out in the heart of Jibia town itself, and with each of these attacks, lives were lost,” a resident said.
