A joint security team of the Nigerian Police and Army have been spotted at the Danmusa Local Government Area of Katsina State, including Yantumaki on Monday.
This comes after bandits invaded Danmusa and other surrounding communities on Saturday, killing one man and leaving four others with varying degrees of injury.
Although the state police command had not issued an official statement as of Monday afternoon, residents disclosed that security operatives had been patrolling the town and the surrounding communities since Saturday after the attack.
Residents also said that the security operatives prevented the bandits from operating longer in the town on Saturday as they ( the bandits) were said to have been repelled after a fierce gun battle.
The bandits were also alleged to have made attempts to attack Yantumaki on Sunday night but the presence of the security operatives in the area forced them to retreat to the forest.
One of the residents who pleaded anonymity said, “The army and the police have been patrolling here( Danmusa) and our neighborhood since Saturday.You know security operatives including the army and the police are permanently stationed along the Dutsin-ma/ Kankara highway which is not far from here.
“The police and the Army have been patrolling here ( Danmusa) since Saturday night and they have been here today( Monday) because of our closeness to the forest.”
No arrest has been made in connection with Saturday attack while the police spokesman in the state,SP Gambo Isah was yet to react to SMS seeking clarification on the incident.
Meanwhile, the town( Danmusa ) remained calm on Monday while normal activities were going on.
