The Katsina police command claims to have thwarted a potential bandit raid at Layin Minister in the Malumfashi local government region, rescuing scores of cows.


The command's spokesperson, Gambo Isah, made the announcement in Katsina on Monday morning.

“Bandits on motorbikes, equipped with an AK 47 rifle, blocked a feeder route at Layin Minister, Malumfashi LGA, and kidnapped a 45-year-old man from Tafkin Jege village, Kafur LGA, on July 17, 2021, at about 11:02 p.m.


“A group of police officers commanded by DPO Kankara caught them in Unguwar Nakome, Yargoje village, Kankara, engaged them in a gunfight, and rescued the victim.”


“One AK-47 rifle was seized throughout the process of profiling the scene,” the statement continued.


On the same day, about 5:00 a.m., the DPO led a squad of police officers to Majifa in Kankara, where bandits were engaged in a shootout and 36 rustled cows were recovered.


“Many bandits are thought to have escaped with gunshot wounds, while a search party is still scouring the region in the hopes of apprehending the fugitives.


The police statement continued, "The command urges members of the public to continue to cooperate with security agents by providing them with credible information."
