Many soldiers feared dead as bandits attack military base in Katsina

A military outpost in Marina, Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State reportedly came under attack on Thursday March 4. 

Daily Trust reported that the attack was carried out by bandits around 1pm on Thursday and the number of casaulties recorded is still not clear. 

The soldiers were said to be returning from an operation in a nearby forest when they were ambushed. A resident of the area told the publication; 

“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 said two of the bandits were killed during the gun duel.
