The Katsina State Police Command has confirmed that over 30 persons were killed by bandits in Batsari Local Government Area of the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Gambo Isah, who confirmed the incident on Saturday, said the victims were killed in Tsauwa and Dankar villages.

Isah said the bandits invaded the two villages riding on motorcycles on Friday night and begun to shoot residents of the two villages.

According to him, the bandits killed 21 persons in Tsauwa village and the remaining nine in Dankar.

He, however, said that the police and the military were able to arrest one bandit and recovered nine motorcycles belonging to the hoodlums.

Isah said additional policemen and the military were deployed to the areas with a view to protect the communities around.

He said the State Commissioner of Police, Sanusi Buba, had visited the affected areas for assessment of the situation with a view to prevent further occurrence and trail the bandits to their hideouts.

The News Agency of Nigeria gathered that majority of those killed were the aged and children who could not run for their life.

The bandits burnt down many houses, animals and foodstuffs in Tsauwa village.

President Muhammadu Buhari is from Katsina State where banditry had also gained grounds alongside other parts of the country.

Several persons had been killed and kidnapped, including village heads.

This has forced the state Governor, Aminu Masari, to reach an agreement with the bandits, which has led to the release of some kidnap victims.
