Gunmen on Monday have abducted a village head and 15 other people at Unguwar Malamai, Danmusa Local Government, Katsina state.
A resident of the village, in an interview with Aminiya, said the gunmen invaded the village where they spent hours frightening the community, before finally whisking away with the village head and 15 others.
“They invaded our village called Unguwar Malamai around 11: 45 pm, and spent several hours firing random shots,” he said.
“They kidnapped 16 people including the village head, Kabiru Mai Unguwa, 6 married women, 3 young women, and 6 kids.”
“Three of the gunmen forced one of the affected people to convey them to his children on a motorbike, and they abducted and whisked them away.”
“The man rushed and filed a report to the police, but instead of them to confront the gunmen, they ordered him to sleepover in the station,” lamented the resident.
When contacted the Katsina State Police Command’s spokesperson, SP Isah Gambo, told Sahelian Times that he is waiting for the DPO of the community to give him details on what transpired.
