Katsina State witnessed another night of horror as armed bandits launched separate attacks, plunging Goda village and Daudawa neighborhood into tragedy.
Reports indicate that on Sunday night, Goda village, situated near the Kurfi Local Government border, became the epicentre of a vicious attack by armed assailants.
DAILY POST learnt that the assault claimed the life of a villager, just as several houses, including the home of Sagir Goda, a vigilant community member, were set ablaze.
“It was like a nightmare,” recounted a Goda resident.
“Gunshots, houses were on fire. We all ran for our lives. We lost a neighbour, and many families are now without homes,” he said.
In a span of about four hours, another group of bandits targeted Daudawa neighbourhood in Faskari Local Government Area.
Alhaji Sale, a respected community member, bore the brunt of the assault as the criminals abducted him, along with his two wives, identified as Amina and Rabi.
“We heard gunshots around 1:30 am,” shared a local eyewitness.
“Later, we found out that Alhaji Sale’s house was ransacked, and they took him, his wives, and three of his cows,” the source added.
“We are terrified. These attacks are happening too often. We appeal to the authorities to swiftly apprehend these criminals and restore peace to our communities,” expressed one resident.
