President Bola Tinubu has directed security agencies to go after those behind the attacks and killings of citizens in Dutsin-Ma and Kankara Local Government Areas of Katsina State.

The President, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Chief Ajuri Ngelale on Tuesday, condoled with the families of the deceased, as well as the Government and people of Katsina State, and prayed for the repose of the souls of the departed.

Recall that the Katsina State Police Command had confirmed the killing on the afternoon of Sunday, 9 June 2024, of about 20 people in the Gidan Bofa and Dan Nakwabo communities in Kankara LGA of Katsina state.
The assailants killed 15 people in Gidan Boka village and another five in the Dan Nakwabo community.
