Civilian JTF repel terrorists attack, kill 9 in Katsina

The Civilian Joint Task Force, CJTF, in Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State, has repelled a terrorist attack in Batsari town, killing nine terrorists and arresting five others.

A source in the area told that the terrorists invaded the town around 4:30pm on Sunday, riding on 10 motorcycles and wielding sophisticated weapons.

He added that upon receipt of information by some locals, the Civilian JTF members confronted the terrorists, thereby halting their planned attack.

It was also gathered that, out of the 10 motorcycles the terrorists came with for the operation, only one escaped from the town, as the CJTF captured nine of the motorcycles.

According to the source, the terrorists had recently invaded the Batsari town and abducted some victims, but failed at this second attempt due to the presence of the civilian JTF.

The Katsina State Police Command is yet to respond to the development as at the time of filing this report.
