It was gathered that the gunmen, numbering about 30, abducted the entire occupants of three buses.
The bandits said to be heavily armed were said to have attacked a team of soldiers drafted to the scene following a distress call.
Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, on Monday reiterated his call on residents of the state to defend themselves against bandits and other criminals.

He insisted that the reality on the ground had shown that the security of lives and property is a collective responsibility and not that of the Government or security agencies alone.

The Governor appealed to Katsina during the 2022 special prayer session in commemoration of ‘Yaumush Shukur’ (Thanksgiving) day for God’s blessings on Katsina State.

Arewa coalition carpets Babachir, Dogara

Arewa Coalition for Good Governance (ACGG) has said the hardline positions of former Secretary to the Federal Government Babachir Lawal, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, and Adamawa lawmaker, Senator Ishaku Abbo, over the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), are based on selfish interests. According to the Coalition, their anger was based on the premise that none of them was picked as running mates.
“At a time when critical stakeholders of the APC should be working for unity and progress ahead of the 2023 general elections, they have decided to deploy religious sentiments as a weapon of war to discourage Christians from Tinubu/Shettima,” the coalition said.

A statement by one of its leaders in Kaduna State, Elder Peter Auta, reads: “Nigerians, especially the electorate, are wise enough to know that whipping religious sentiments against any candidate is not the solution to the challenges of insecurity, dwindling economy, insurgency, high unemployment, bad governance and other problems militating against progress and development of Nigeria.

The leadership of this country has failed everyone. And with the coming election, they don’t have time for the economy. Better we vote wisely in the coming election.
