Chaotic Honeymoon; Newlyweds abducted, one killed by bandits

Unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits have killed one person and abducted a newly wedded couple at Runka community in Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State. 

 Gambo Isah, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, on Monday confirmed the incident. 

Isah, however, stated that he was making efforts to contact the Divisional Police Officer in the local government for more details. 

According to a resident of Runka, the community was attacked by the armed men in the early hours of Monday. 

The victim, according to the resident, was simply identified as Sama’ila Super, an uncle to the lawmaker representing Safana Constituency in the Katsina State House of Assembly. 

Super, who was reported to have been killed after he resisted attempts by the bandits to kidnap him, was buried hours after the incident. 

The resident decried that a similar attack was carried out on Sunday where some scores of villagers were abducted at Babban Duhu Community. 

He noted that many locals were wounded during the incident and were taken to a hospital for medical treatment.
