Scores are feared killed in Katsina state as bandits launched multiple attacks in three local government areas of Safana, Danmusa and Dutsinma.

Sources say the attacks were coming few days after relief materials were shared to some Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the area.

The beneficiaries were said to have gone home with food items given to them by the government when the bandits struck in the early hours, snatching them away.

The villagers formed some resistance which led to more bandits coming out in large numbers to attack unsuspecting people in the areas and killing many, our reporter gathered.

A source also confided in our reporter that many corpses are being brought to hospitals across the areas.
