The confrontation with the attackers was said to have started about two weeks ago, when bandits stormed the village and rustled some animals.

However, some villagers who chased after the attackers, recovered the animals from one of the bandits, and handed him over to Soldiers.

In response, the bandits asked the villagers to raise N1 million, to evade imminent attacks.

Nonetheless, following negotiations, the amount was reportedly reduced to N700,000, and subsequently spread across the residents, a source said.

When contacted over the issue, the Spokesperson for the Katsina State Police Command said that the Police are investigating the issue.
