More bod­ies found in Katsina forests

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Idris Mah­mud, Katsina

Vil­lagers who went to find fire­wood near the Rugu/ Birn­ingwari for­est in in Sabua and Faskari LGAs of Katsina State say they have come across more corpses in the area.

The bod­ies could not be iden­ti­fied, but this is com­ing af­ter a re­cent at­tack which claimed 117 people in the area. The for­est is be­lieved to be a haven for armed rob­bers and other hood­lums that are ter­ror­is­ing neigh­bour­hoods in Kaduna and Katsina States.

Malam Dahiru of Fankama vil­lage of Faskari LGA said about four corpses were found by the river side in Ta­banni vil­lage. He couldn’t say whose they were, but sug­gested they could be of thieves or their vic­tims. Nor­malcy has since re­turned to Faskari and Sabuwa LGAs. People wounded in the at­tack weeks ago were taken to a hospi­tal Kano.
