Some unknown gunmen suspected to be armed bandits on Tuesday afternoon abducted the village head of Garin Labo in Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State.

The village head, whose name was not given, was said to have been abducted about 1pm while on his farmland along with some other villagers.

Sources said the bandits stormed the farmlands on motorcycles and started shooting indiscriminately. It was in the confusion of the moment that the village head was abducted, while those with him fled in different directions.

The Spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, SP Gambo Isah, confirmed the development on Wednesday.

He said, “It is true.  Efforts are on course with a view to rescuing him from these rascals.  Operation Puff Adder responded to the distress call but since it was inside his farmland far away near the Rugu forest but before they could get to the place, the hoodlums have already fled into the Rugu forest. We are following a lead that may assist us in his rescue.

“The command is calling on members of the communities in the affected areas to always form groups while going to their farms and inform security agencies for back up.”
