The police in Katsina State have said that its operatives have neutralised two people on their wanted list.
This was contained in a statement issued by the new spokesman of the command, ASP Abubakar Aliyu, on Thursday.
The statement reads in part: “On May 29, at about 0300hrs, terrorists/bandits in their numbers, armed with AK-47 rifles, attacked the residence of one Yahaya Usman of Tani village, Bindawa LGA of the state. They inflicted a deep knife cut on his head in an attempt to kidnap him.”
Upon receiving the report, Aliyu said the operatives attached to the Bindawa Division led by the DPO promptly responded and “engaged the suspected terrorists in a fierce gun duel and successfully foiled the kidnap attempt and rescued the victim.”
He said two corpses of the suspected terrorists were recovered, noting that, “During the course of investigation, the corpses were identified to be those of Sani Kokaya and Ummara, all of Kaita LGA of the state. (NAN)
