Fresh Protest In Katsina Over Killings

Following the recent onslaught of bandits in several communities, a fresh protest erupted in Katsina State on Thursday.

Barely two days after residents of the area council protested insecurity in the state, some youths in Yankara, which is a community under Faskari LGA, reportedly staged another protest today.

The youths were said to have blocked Zaria-Sokoto Federal highway to register their frustration to the relevant authorities.

The insurgents kidnapped the village head and six others during the attack.

President Muhammadu Buhari, had in a statement condemning the Borno attack, had said the “primordial nature of the killings is particularly shocking because it happened not long after the Ramadhan and Eid, and the country is preparing to celebrate the Democracy Day.”
