Midnight Invasion Claims One In Kastina As Bandits Freely Reign Terror

A Sunday midnight invasion of Shola Quarters in Katsina State has led to the death of a yet-to-be identified person as two others were injured while a couple were whisked away.

This came barely two months after armed-to-the-teeth terrorists launched an attack in the same community, according to WikkiTimes’ findings. On July 14, unrestrained gunmen besieged Sola Quarters at about 2:00 am, kidnapping six residents, including a two-year-old baby girl.

The renewed attack lasted more than 30 minutes, starting at 1:30 am on Sunday, as per Channels TV. Residents told the broadcast station that the gunmen kidnapped a couple during the attack. Also, two people sustained gunshot injuries, and they have been taken to the neighbouring Federal Teaching Hospital, Katsina.

Shola Quarters is a community situated behind the Federal Teaching Hospital, Katsina. As a result of its proximity to bandits around Bugaje Community in Jibia Local Government Area of the state, it has over time become prone to unforeseen attacks.

Gambo Isah, the spokesman for Katsina State Police Command could not immediately comment on the incident. However, he is yet to respond to WikkiTimes’ enquiry into the matter.

In press statement on his Facebook wall, the spokesman revealed that operatives of the command raided terrorists’ strongholds in Unguwan Dako, Tandama Village under Danja local council and “recued” six kidnapped victims namely; Alhaji Garba Dan Mallam, Rabiu Idris, Abba Samaila, Yunusa Sani, Ishaq Yakub and Danjuma Samaila.
