Emerging report from Katsina State says bandits have abducted 39 children in a farm sadly


Parents of 39 children who were abducted by bandits while working on a farm in the Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State have pleaded with the government to come to their aid.


The bandits, on Sunday, according to a source, in their large numbers invaded the farm where the children were working.

According to the source, Mairuwa community was the worst hit in the attack by the bandits. He explained that the terrorists started shooting sporadically when they (bandits) surrounded the farm.

The source added that N1miilion was paid to the bandits as levy before mobilising the children by a representative of the farm, explaining that most of the adults working on the farm with the children were able to escape during the attack.

The source said, “They demanded N3m from the owner for him to be able to harvest his produce, he gave them N1 million as part payment and decided to begin the work before completing the money, but unfortunately the bandits did not accept that. In our village, Mairuwa, alone we have 33 among the victims including young ladies who are due for marriage.”

He stated that the owner of the farm is a Funtua resident, but his representative is residing in Mairuwa village, saying that as he speaks, the bandits have used the cell phone of one of the victims to call demanding a ransom of N30 million.

He added that they (bandits) said they were at the farm to abduct the owner or his representative, stressing that since they could not meet either of them, they decided to kidnap those working for them.

SP Gambo Isah, the police spokesman in Katsina, assured that there was an ongoing effort by the police to rescue the victims with synergy with the state government and other security agencies.

It was also gathered that six of the victims regained freedom on Tuesday.
