The incessant cases of kidnapping and armed banditry in Katsina State have taken a new dimension in Kankara town, in Kankara Local Government Area of the state.
PRNigeria reports that residents of the area on Thursday night mobilized and killed two bandits out of several number of them who besieged the town to cause mayhem.

However, a car dealer and a businessman of Yandaki Village in Kaita Local Government Council, was not lucky as they were kidnapped from their residence.
Kankara town has a major highway connecting travelers from Abuja and kaduna to Katsina town, the state capital.

A community leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they resorted to self-help to protect their lives and property due to the incessant banditry and kidnapping in the area.
“The other bandits had to escape when they discovered that residents really prepared and ambushed them in a surprise attack,” the source said.

Police Public Relations Officer of Katsina Command, SP Gambo Isa, said he would speak on the incident after contacting the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Kankara.
Kidnapping is rampant in most local government areas of Katsina State especially in Jibia, Dandume, Faskari, Sabuwa, Danmusa, Safana, Kankara, Batsari, Dutsinma, Kurfi, Funtua and Katsina metropolis.

Some of the councils border the dreaded Rugu forest, which serves as hideout for bandits. The rise is also said to be fallout of the insecurity in neighboring Zamfara State, which also borders the forest.

The bandits are not only intercepting travellers on the major highways in the state but storm towns and residences to pick their victims randomly.
An 80-year-old Mother-in-Law of the State Governor, Hajiya Maistiyari who was kidnapped at her residence in Sabon Gari area of Katsina State was released after eight days in the custody of her abductors.
