Atiku Laments Attack, Kidnapping of Women, Children in Katsina

Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has expressed sadness at reports of an attack on Yargoje village in Kankara LGA of Katsina State,

Concise News learnt that the attack claimed scores of lives and also led to the kidnap of vulnerable women and children.

In a statement, Atiku said, “It is also sad that the bandits ambushed the police armoured personnel carrier responding to the distress call at Gidan Tofa and Dan Nakwabo villages, killing four police officers and two members of the Katsina State Community Watch Corps.

“Most worrisome to me is that these acts of banditry and terrorism have become routine, with the government seemingly helpless and nonchalant about it despite the enormous annual budget for defence.

“While I sympathise with the families of the victims, I will once again call on the government to be alive to its responsibility of protecting the lives and property of the citizens. -AA”
