Bandits’ attacks have now become routine in the northwest, especially Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto, Kaduna, and Kebbi, as well as in Niger State in the north-central, attacks on rural communities, travellers and farmers occur almost daily.
These gunmen, locally referred to as bandits have struck again as on Thursday night they attacked commuters along the Kankara-Dan Musa highway in Katsina State.
During the attack, the terrorists killed Alhaji Jamilu Jadda, a prominent member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state. Katsina is the home state of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Comprehensive details of the incident are still sketchy, but local sources told POLITICS NIGERIA that the bandits stormed the expressway around 10 pm and unleashed mayhem on travellers.
Effort to get comments from the police command spokesperson in Katsina State, Gambo Isa, was unsuccessful.
The activities of these bandits have disrupted farming, the principal occupation of the area. These assailants burn farmlands, and they regularly sack farming communities. The bandits ask those who are lucky to pay levies before they can farm. Those who have resisted or could not raise the levies on time have either been killed or prevented from harvesting their crop.
