The Punch - - METRO - Olaide Oye­lude, Katsina

SUS­PECTED ban­dits have kid­napped three peo­ple from the staff quar­ters of the Gov­ern­ment Sci­ence Sec­ondary School, Dutsin-ma, Katsina State.

The ban­dits re­port­edly in­vaded the school’s staff quar­ters on

Tues­day to per­pe­trate the act.

Sources dis­closed that the ban­dits ab­ducted the wife of one of the em­ploy­ees of the school as well as her sis­ter and daugh­ter.

The names of the vic­tims could, how­ever, not be as­cer­tained as of press time.

It was learnt that the ban­dits were likely from the stretch of the Rugu for­est close to the town.

The spokesman for the state po­lice com­mand, Sp Isah Gambo, con­firmed the in­ci­dent.

He said, “The in­ci­dent is true. We have, how­ever, got a lead that will as­sist us in track­ing down the hood­lums.

“The ban­dits struck in the evening of Tues­day, De­cem­ber 17, 2019, and our men im­me­di­ately mounted road­blocks around the town. The ban­dits must have come from the stretch of the Rugu for­est around the town.

“Those ab­ducted were the wife of a worker in the school, her sis­ter and her daugh­ter. But we are work­ing on res­cu­ing them.”
