Bandits Attack Military Camp in Nigeria’s Katsina State

A joint military camp in Nahuta hamlet, Batsari Local Government Area, Katsina, was attacked by a well-armed band of bandits carrying sophisticated weapons, including as AK-47 rifles.

One of the camp’s security sources disclosed that the event happened on Sunday, January 14, at approximately 11:30 p.m.

Even though the assailants outnumbered the camp staff, they were driven back after damaging vehicles and belongings. Thankfully, no casualties from the incident were reported.

He said: “The bandits outweighed us and invaded the camp where they set ablaze our vehicles and property because there was no reinforcement throughout the encounter.”

Following the assault on the military camp, the bandits extended their rampage to Nahuta town.

Engaging in widespread looting, they burgled shops, entered homes, and escaped with valuable possessions and domestic animals, amounting to millions of naira in estimated losses.

Despite these events, security agencies in the North-Western state have not issued an official statement regarding the recent bandit attack at the time of this report.
