Residents kill, burnt 3 suspected bandits in Katsina market
Angry residents have killed and burnt three (3) suspected bandits in Charanchi market of Katsina State on Sunday.
An eyewitness who does not want his name to be mentioned told Katsina Post that the suspected bandits were caught carrying AK-47 rifle in the market.
“The bandits came to the cattle section of the market to sell their cattle but a good Samaritan noticed one of them carrying gun.
“All of them were wearing a long overall gown apparently to conceal what they were carrying”, he said.
On seeing the rifle, the people of the market descend on them, killed two of them instantly and set them ablaze.
The other one of them was able to escape the mob with serious degrees of injuries but couldn’t leave the market.
He body was later found dead in a gutter and was also set ablaze.
Efforts to get across to the police for comment on the issue proves abortive.
