No fewer than 30 suspected bandits were killed on Monday by residents and local vigilante of Majifa village in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.
According to a resident of the village, “Resident of the village received the information that bandits were planning to attack them that night, so they ambushed them and God helped them to repel the attack and they killed at least 30 of the bandits,” he said.
However, he 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.
