A journalist has had his life cut short by arrmed bandits who attacked travellers in Katsina.

 

The journalist, Ibrahim Hamisu Dankabo died during the incident that saw the bandits abduct many travellers in Jibia Local Government of Katsina State. 

 

A community leader in the area, Gide Suleiman, told PREMIUM TIMES that Mr Dankabo, a cameraman attached to the Information Unit of Jibia Local Government, was shot dead on Monday, May 3, in Kukar-Babangida area of Jibia when he responded to a distress call from a female neighbour during a kidnap incident. 

 

The kidnappers later went away with the woman who is the mother of a traditional title holder in Niger Republic, the source added. 

 

Meanwhile, other residents said the attackers also abducted many travellers on the Katsina-Jibia road, most of whom are residents of Magamar Jibia.

 

“We are living in constant fear of attack and abduction and we cannot ply some major roads. The security agents have advised residents to stop using the Gurbi road from Zurmi in Zamfara to Jibia in Katsina because kidnappers operate with impunity on the high,” a resident lamented. 

“The security agents are on ground but the bandits operate at will without hindrance. The security agents seldom respond to distress calls. And one of two of their armoured vehicles in Jibia town has been grounded for at least two months now.
