A resident in the area who raised the alarm over the incident, Mallam Yusufu Musa, said the bandits were operating from the forest area of Jibiya Local Government Area of Katsina State.
DAILY POST recalls that suspected bandits, a few days ago, attacked and kidnapped a businessman in the same area. He was killed despite a N4 million ransom in the Kafur LGA.
However, the joint team of the Nigerian Army and the Police could not save the kidnapped victims even as they engaged the terrorists in a gun duel.
The Katsina Police Public Relations Officer was not available to confirm the incident as he did not pick up telephone calls before this report was filed.
