At least 30 suspected bandits were killed by residents and local vigilante of Majifa village in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Although details surrounding the incident were sketchy as at the time of filing this report, Daily Trust learnt that the villagers laid an ambush for the gunmen.
He, however, added that other bandits rushed back on camels to retrieve the corpses, saying, “While the villagers were waiting for the day break to burn the corpses, they woke up to see that all the dead bodies had been taken away, with other neigbouring villages confirming that some people did that using camels.”
That was the third time within three weeks that residents would confront gunmen.
On Sunday, residents of Magama in Jibia Local Government confronted attackers and killed three of them.
Similarly, residents of Yan Marafa and Mununu villages in Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina dared their attackers during which scores were killed.
