Umar
Bagadaza Kankara and Lauwali Dutse .


Abaleftonline gathered that a gunfire
exchange that followed the incident was said to
have left a number of bandits dead, with scores
of them sustaining gunshot wounds .
A soldier , who was among reinforcement to the
area sustained gunshot wounds on his thigh , is
currently receiving treatment at the Federal
Medical Centre, Katsina.

A security source told Abaleftonline that NIS
has a base at the village where the incident
occurred , with the area seen as safe haven for
many herdsmen and their animals .


The incident occurred at Kadobe village .
Fulani herdsmen had brought their cattle there
for pasture and for security , as Immigration
has a base there , ” the source said .


But the bandits decided to attack the place
yesterday night after several efforts to do so in
the past had proved abortive .
“ The sad thing is that people in the community
said they saw strange faces lurking around in
the evening of the incident , but they refused to
alert the security on the situation .


When the bandits attacked , they started
shooting sporadically and at our men , and our
men fired back also . They killed two of our
men , but we killed several of theirs too.
