Tinubu condemns killings in Katsina, gives order to security agencies

President Bola Tinubu has strongly condemned the killings in Dutsin-Ma and Kankara Local Government Areas of Katsina State.

In a statement on Monday, the state Police Command confirmed the killing of about 20 people, including four police officers and two operatives of the state-owned Community Watch Corps, by suspected bandits.

The statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, ASP Abubakar Sadiq-Aliyu, said the attacks occurred on Sunday at Gidan Tofa and Dan Nakwabo villages in the Kankara Local Government Area of the state.

In response to the attack, Tinubu, in a statement on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, described the latest attacks as grisly and sinister.

The President promised that his administration would do more to secure citizens and completely degrade terrorists and other harbingers of death and sorrow in any part of the country.

The statement added: “President Tinubu directs security agencies to go after the assailants and ensure that they are brought to justice.

“The President condoles with the families of the deceased, as well as the Government and people of Katsina State, and prays for the repose of the souls of the departed.”
