Katsina bleeds: A diary of bandits attack on Katsina communities
Recently, many communities have been affected by multiple bandits attacks and in some cases, severally.
Local Government Areas worst hit by the devastating situation are Batsari, Jibia, Danmusa, Kankara, Safana, Faskari, Sabuwa and Dandume.
It is also worthy to note that other Local Government Areas like Dutsin-ma, Batagarawa, Katsina, Kurfi among others also got attacked at many times by the rascals.
Lately, there has been a surge in popularity of the carnage especially on the social media and people have been calling on government to take drastic measures to end the bloodletting in the affected areas.
Another thing observed by Katsina Post is that majority of the attacks are unreported especially in the mainstream media. It is with this in mind, we now intends to document all those attacks going forward with the hope that authorities will take action.
