Gunmen kill vigilante, injure others in Katsina
Gunmen shot dead a man simply identified as Abba, when they raided a satellite community of Shola Quarters in Katsina town on Sunday morning.
According to a source, the gunmen in their operation also injured two residents of the community and abducted a young couple.
The source further explained that the gunmen came to the community on Saturday evening and commenced their evil act on Sunday morning.
The deceased, Abba, was a member of the vigilante group in the community when he was shot and killed him.
The source stated that those injured by the gunmen were lucky to have escaped being killed as the gunmen shoot indiscriminately.
According to him, “The gunmen arrived in our community on Saturday evening and mingled with residents. They began operations around 1am and were shooting indiscriminately. We contacted security officials who later arrived after the gunmen had carried out their operation and left the community.”
He lamented that they cannot quantify items raided from their community by now as they are busy with the preparation for Abba’s burial.
SP Gambo Isah, the Spokesman for the Katsina State Police Command, when contacted, confirmed that their operatives were still on operation, promising to give details in due course.
