Report says bandits kill 11 hunters, injure others in Katsina

Nigeria - In what could be described as a mismatch, eleven hunters have reportedly lost their lives after an ambush by suspected bandits on Sunday night, at Dajin Giwa forest, in Kankara council area of Katsina State , The Guardian reports.


The hunters, who hailed from Zan-Bago, Gidan-Goje, Tashar Tsamiya and Kaurawa communities were on a hunting expedition when the incident occurred.
It was gathered that the hunters that managed to escape sustained serious injuries.
A source in the area told The Guardian yesterday that the bandits killed 10 hunters on the spot, and injured many others.
His words, “We brought their corpses and those injured to Kankara General Hospital this morning (Monday). Unfortunately, one of the injured persons died today (yesterday) bringing the number to 11.”
Police Public relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, SP Gambo Isah, said that only eight of the local hunters were killed during the ambush.
He added that the hunters and some volunteers, locally known as Yansakai, who believed in supernatural powers, had mobilised and gone into the forest to fight the bandits.
Unfortunately, the battle turned bloody as the bandits were armed with dangerous weapons, he noted.
“These hunters and some Yansakai thought they have supernatural powers and medicine against AK47. They grouped themselves and formed a formidable team with sophisticated weapons and went to Dajin Giwa forest to fight the bandits. Unfortunately, while eight of them were killed, some were seriously injured.
Among the dead are Abdulaziz Bawa, Muntari Kaura, Nura and Yahaya both of Tashar Tsamiya and Umar Bawa.
