Even as President Muhammadu Buhari and the members of the National Security Council continue to device fresh strategies in tackling the worsening security challenge plaguing the country, bandits have again abducted a 13-year-old girl, Khadijat Mutaka, in the Kurfi Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Katsina is the president’s home-state and has continued to experience increasing cases of banditry resulting in killings of innocent people.

Eyewitnesses said the bandits also shot and injured one Ibrahim Yar-Garshe, 30, during the attack.

It was learnt that the bandits stormed the Kurfi community around 9pm after scaling the surrounding mountains.

A security team made up of Operation Puff Adder reportedly confronted the bandits, who later escaped into the bush with the girl.
