Katsina: Bandits kidnap 2 children after killing their dad and stealing his money

Armed bandits have killed a businessman, Ibrahim Kwatahi, and kidnapped two of his children at Jargaba village in the Bakori local government area of Katsina state.

Residents said that the gunmen stormed the village around 1:00am on Wednesday.

The bandits were said to have trekked to Jargaba after parking their motorcycles at a location close to the village.

“After killing Alhaji and abducting his two children, they carted away huge sums of money from the house,” a resident said.

Katsina is one of the states most affected by terrorism and banditry in Nigeria’s North-West region.

On December 11, 2020, some bandits kidnapped 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara. They were released about a week later.

Also on December 19, 2020, 84 Islamiyya students of Hizburrahim Islamiyya in Mahuta village, Dandume local government area of the state were also kidnapped but rescued shortly after.
