A lecturer with the Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA) in Katsina State, Dr. Tiri Gyan David, has been killed by bandits.
Dr David, who was the Head of the Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension, and Rural Development of the university, was killed in the early hours of Tuesday.
A resident said the assailants abducted two of the late lecturer’s children after killing him.
The deceased resided at Yarima Quarters, Low-Cost Estate, Dutsinma Local Government Area of Katsina State.
The source added that the bandits invaded the community with sophisticated weapons, shooting sporadically to scare the residents.
The Katsina Police Command spokesman, Abubakar Sadiq Aliyu, confirmed the incident but said the command would release a detailed statement about it later.
Recall that in the recent past, some students of the University, who were living off campus, were abducted and later released following negotiations, although authorities said no ransom was paid.
Dutsinma is one of the local government areas grappling with banditry, although there has been a reduction in the rate of attacks in recent times due to the efforts by both the state government and security agencies in tackling the menace.
