Armed gunmen stormed communities in Faskari Local Government of Katsina State on Tuesday, killing scores of residents.

For hours, the residents were at the mercy of the bandits.

More than 40 people, mostly the elderly, women and children, were killed.

Also, a number of young females were raped.

A source told PRNigeria on Wednesday that communities affected include Kadisau, Maigora, Kabalawa, Kwakware, Raudama and Unguwar Wahabi.

The source said the bandits stormed the communities on several motorcycles.

“They abused some young girls and married women while setting houses and food stores on fire.”

He added that the assailants also “robbed the villagers before they rustled domestic animals, especially cows and sheep”.

However, the bandits have threatened more attacks.

The attackers sent words that they would return after Wednesday’s funeral service (Janaizah) for the victims.

But Police spokesman in Katsina State, SP Gambo Isah, has assured the people of safety.

“The Area Commander in Funtua, DPOs and military personnel are currently in the area to ensure maximum security during the burial and afterwards”, he said.
