Amid efforts by the federal and state governments to address growing insecurity across the country, especially in the northeast, bandits have staged a fresh attack in Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State killing one person and abducting two others.
According to reports, the attack occurred at about 12:30 am in the town of Gidangizo.
Witnesses say the assailants who stormed the community on motorcycles ransacked houses and demanded money from occupants.
It was in this process that one person was shot at close range while four others sustained injuries.
The attack is coming days after Katsina state governors, Aminu Masari told president Muhammadu Buhari that the security situation in the state is under control.
