8 Fulani men slaughtered in Katsina

The spokesperson for the police command in Katsina State, Isah Gambo has confirmed 8 Fulani men were slaughtered by Yan Sakai, a banned vigilante group in the state on Wednesday, October 14.

Reports say the men were reportedly killed by the bandits in the Kurfi Local Government Area of the state.

Mr. Gambo described the incident as “condemnable and totally unacceptable”.

“We are investigating the matter with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book. No sane society will condone this kind of act and that was why the Katsina State Government banned the activities of Yan Sakai in the state,” he added.
