Bandits have attacked Kanawa and Runka villages of Danmusa Local Government Area of Katsina State.

At least six people were killed in the attacks, Daily Trust gathered.

A resident of Kanawa village, who confided in Daily Trust, said the attackers came Saturday evening and dispersed the villagers.

“When we heard the roar of their motorcycles, we all dispersed into the bush but they chased some of us and gunned down six and injured others.

“As I speak with you now (Sunday morning), we have just finished the burial of the six persons killed; three sustained serious injuries.

“One is receiving medical care in Katsina and the others at Danmusa hospital,” he said.

He said the bandits, who were on about 60 motorcycles, came around 6:30 pm, adding that they carted away some domestic animals belonging to some brides in the villages.

Confirming the incident, the police spokesman in Katsina, SP Gambo Isah, said the attack was a reprisal by one Mani Doro whose boy was killed by the Kanawa residents.

This attack came a few days after the police repelled a bandits’ attack on Wurma and Yarbudu villages of Kurfi Local Government Area during which five of the attackers were reportedly killed.
