Bandits abduct Kastsina village head

Gunmen suspected to be bandits on Tuesday afternoon abducted the village head of Garin Labo in  Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State.

 The village head, whose name was not given, was said to have been abducted about 1pm while on his farm alongside some other villagers.

Sources said the bandits stormed the farm on motorcycles and started shooting indiscriminately.

They abducted the village head while others reportedly fled in different directions for their safety.

Spokesman for the police in the state, SP Gambo Isah, confirmed the development on Wednesday.

He said,  “It is true.  Efforts are on course to rescue him. Operation Puff Adder responded to the distress call but since the abduction was inside his farm near the Rugu forest, the hoodlums had fled into the forest before help could reach him. We are following a lead that may assist us in his rescue.

“We are calling on members of the community  to always form groups while going to their farms and inform the  security agencies for security back up.”
