Suspected bandits attacked Tsayau Village, Mallamawa Ward of Jibiya Local Government Area of Katsina State on Tuesday night leaving four persons dead, seven injured, and 17 others abducted.
Buildings were razed down while animals were rustled and properties in the village were destroyed. Among those abducted include housewives and children.
According to a source from the village, Alkasim Tsayau, the bandits arrived at about 7:30 PM, operated for almost 4 hours with ease despite the fact that the village is about a kilometer away from a military base.
The attack comes as the people of Jibiya Local Government Area are still coming to terms with the accident involving a motor vehicle of the Nigeria Customs Service which left 10 persons dead.
