He stated that the bandits vented their anger at Project Quarters, Funtua, where they went away with a number of people.

He added that the kidnappers had been terrorising Funtua, Bakori, and neighboring villages.

Abdulkadir said:

“For the past two weeks or so, kidnappers have put the people of Funtua, Bakori, and neighboring villages under siege, kidnapping people almost on a daily basis.
“The little resistance being put up by the local vigilantes is gradually being whittled away, with security agents seemingly helplessly overwhelmed.
“But the renewed effort put up by Katsina State Government may yet checkmate the bandits with the purchase of new Armoured Personnel Carriers, APCs.
“May Allah come to our rescue and put an end to this madness."
