Bandits storm military base in Katsina, many soldiers feared killed

Bandits launched a dare-devil ambush attack on a Nigerian Army outpost in Marina, Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State, with an unspecified number of soldiers feared killed.

Sources said that the attack was carried out around 1pm on Thursday as the soldiers were returning from an operation in nearby forests when they were ambushed.

A resident of Marina said that “unknown to the soldiers, the bandits had laid ambush in their outpost. The bandits opened fire immediately the soldiers returned to the posts.

“It is unfortunate because the soldiers were just returning from another operation, where they made tremendous success, combing the forests for the bandits, only to be waylaid in their base.”

Another resident, however, said two of the bandits were killed during the gun duel.

There is yet no confirmation of the ambush attack from the Nigerian Army or the Police.
