Bandits Gun Down Politician During Ramadan Prayers, Abduct Wife, Daughters

A politician, simply identified as Alhaji Lado, has been killed by bandits in Mairuwa village, Faskari local government area of Katsina State.

It was gathered that the attack occurred in the village mosque on Saturday night while worshippers were observing Ramadan prayers.

Details of the incident are still sketchy at the moment.

However, it was learnt that the victim was killed when he refused to take orders from his murderers.

One of the survivors of the mosque attack told Daily Trust that the attackers kidnapped the wife and two daughters of Alhaji Lado.

An eyewitness also said that one of the victims of the attack was a health worker he simply identified as Sani.

“He worked at the Mairuwa Health Facility,” the witness said.

Katsina is one of the worst-hit states by bandits.

Many attempts to keep the criminals in check have not yielded the desired result.

The Katsina State police command is yet to react to the unfortunate development.
