Bandits Attack Military Camp In Katsina

Armed bandits terrorising parts of Katsina State have attacked a joint military camp at Nahuta village in Batsari Local Government Area of the state.

It was learnt that the incident occurred at about 11:30 pm on Sunday.

The assailants, who were armed with sophisticated weapons, including AK-47 rifles, destroyed vehicles and some valuables during the assault.

A security source attached to the camp, who confirmed the development to Channels Television on Monday, said no life was lost.

The source explained that the security personnel attached to the camp succeeded in repelling the attack even though the bandits outweighed them.

“The bandits outweighed us and invaded the camp where they set ablaze our vehicles and property because there was no reinforcement throughout the encounter, ” he added.

The armed men, however, seized the moment to invade Nahuta town, burgling some shops, breaking into houses, and carting away properties and domestic animals worth millions of naira.

Security agencies have yet to comment officially on the latest attack in the Northwestern state.
