Police ambush bandits, recover 300 rustled animals in Katsina

The Katsina State Command of the Nigeria Police Force said it has ambushed some bandits who attacked some villages in the State and recovered rustled animals.
This was contained in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, SP Gambo Isah, on Sunday.
Isah said the incident occurred on August 7 between the hours of 5:pm to 8:pm when the bandits in their numbers, riding on over 40 motorcycles, raided some villages in the affected LGAs.
The statement added that during the raid the bandits succeeded in rustling over 300 animals which included cows, sheep and goats.
“Following the receipt of the distress call, a combined team of Policemen and vigilante groups were mobilized, and blocked the hoodlums at their exit route into the forest, between Dagarawa and Tsaskiya cattle route,” the statement read in part.
Isah further said that the team engaged the bandits in a fierce gun duel and recovered all the rustled animals, and many of the bandits fled with bullet wounds.
Isah added that search parties were still combing the area to arrest the fleeing bandits or to recover their dead bodies and their operational weapons.
