Another set of students rescued in Katsina as Army dislodge bandits

A troop of Nigerian Army on Saturday rescued 80 abducted pupils of Hizburrahim Islamiyya, an Islamic school in Mahuta, Dandume Local Government Area of Katsina State.

In a statement gathered today Sunday from a staff of Hizburrahim Islamiyya school, the students partaking in Islamic Maulud at Unguwan - Alkasim Dandume to Mahuta ran into bandits.

The school staff stated that the bandits had already kidnapped four persons and rustled 12 cows from Danbaure village, Funtua, and were trying to escape with them into the forest.

“On alerting the security agencies through our local vigilante group members, the Army troop succeeded in dislodging the bandits who abandoned both the kids and cattle.
The quick intervention of the Army troops who were alerted by the vigilante operatives led to the rescue of all the kidnapped victims as well as recovering of all the 12 rustled cows", the staff explained.

Information has it that search parties are still combing the area with a view to arresting the injured bandits or recovering dead bodies while investigation is on-going.

Just a few days ago, 344 students kidnapped from a secondary school in Kankara, Katsina State, were successfully rescued without the loss of any of them by a combined team of Army, Police and Other security agencies.
