Bandits abduct children

Bandits have abducted at least 40 children from rural communities in Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State, parents and local authorities said on Wednesday.

The victims, including boys and girls, were abducted from a farm.

Residents said the bandits surrounded the farm on Sunday and fired sporadically before abducting the workers.

Adults who also worked on the farm fled when the gunmen invaded, a Mairuwa community source told Daily Trust.

According to the report, the bandits had demanded 3 million naira from the farm owner, but he paid 1 million naira, which angered the bandits before they attacked the farm.

The victims include young ladies who are due to marry, said a local who added that the bandits had called to demand a ransom of 30 million naira.
