ADVERTISEMENT

Unknown gunmen attacked the Gwarjo Local Government Area of Katsina State and killed about six persons on Friday.

A source in the affected area identified those killed by the attackers as Abdullahi Ulli, Ali Niga, Bello Yusuf, Dan Ulli, Abdu Bahillace and Samia Ayya.

According to the source,

“The gunmen also injured nine others. They are Mamuda Yahaya, Abubakar Sada, Ibrahim Garba, Buhari Mamman, Lawal Muhammed, Muhammed Sani, Isyaku Yahaya, Gambo Arasi and Muawiya Dogon.”

He explained that as of Sunday, some residents could not be accounted for, adding that those killed were buried on Saturday.

The source attributed the attack in the community to the shutdown of telecommunications, saying that residents could not call for assistance from security operatives and neighbouring communities while the attack was on.

He explained that the gunmen invaded the area around 9 pm and started shooting sporadically on Friday till the early hours of Saturday.

Efforts to get the confirmation of the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Gambo Isah on the incident proved abortive as he did not pick calls put through to him.
