BREAKING: Panic in Katsina as bandits kidnap dozens of passengers in broad daylight

Dozens of passengers commuting in an eighteen-seater bus belonging to the Katsina State Transport Authority were kidnapped by bandits in broad daylight today.

The armed criminals intercepted the bus bearing registration number 14B-300-KT en route from the Funtua local government area to the Katsina local government area.

According to an eyewitness account shared with Channels Television, most passengers were traveling between the two LGAs when the bandits struck.

The ambush took place between the Burdugau and Yargoje communities just before reaching Kankara town.

No official statements have been issued regarding the incident as of now.

Kankara is one of the frontline local government areas in Katsina South where not only the residents but commuters live in fear of bandit attacks.

The North-West state is one of Nigeria’s worst hit by banditry.
