It was gathered that the incident took place at Rumka village when the bandits stormed the village and

killed Sama’ila Supa, an uncle of a lawmaker representing Safana in the State House of Assembly.


Narrating how his uncle was killed, the lawmaker, Abduljalal Haruna, disclosed that his uncle, Mr Supa,

was killed by the gunmen when he refused to be kidnapped.

He said:

“All these are happening despite the presence of security personnel in the area where my uncle was killed.

The distance between (the location of the security officials) is approximately five kilometres to where the gunmen

operated freely.” 

Haruna also said that last night at Babban Duhu Community, the bandits abducted 13 people but seven of the abductees later escaped and returned home.

Police spokesperson for Katsina state, Gambo Isah, said security agents are doing their best to secure the vulnerable communities.
