Feb. 28, 2020
A group of bandits stormed Gurbi village, Kankara LGA of Katsina state, killed four persons and rustled a large number of domestic animals before receiving serious heat from the Police and vigilantes in the area.
The gun battle resulted in the death of 21 persons which include 17 members of the bandits and four members of the locality that have already been identified.
Spokesman of the State Police Command, SP Gambo Isah, who confirmed the incident said that the bandits stormed the town in the early hours of Thursday shooting sporadically but fierce resistance from the community led to a shootout, which resulted to reinforcement by security operatives.
The team succeeded and killed seventeen (17) suspected bandits and recovered eighty cows (80), one hundred and eight sheep and a donkey from the hoodlums earlier carted away from the village and other neighboring villages.
Some of the bandits managed to escape with gunshot wounds. Operatives are combing the nearby bushes for the arrest of the fleeing bandits and recovery of their operational weapons.
An investigation is ongoing.
