Police in Katsina have confirmed the Arrest of a ward head of Gobirau Village in the Faskari Local Government Area of the state for alleged connivance with terrorists.
Police spokesman, SP Gambo Isah, while parading the village head earlier today said the commission received a distress call that one Yahaya Danbai (35) was attacked on his farm by a suspected terrorist using AK 47 rifle.
“The farmer summoned courage, overpowered his assailant, disarmed him and killed the terrorist.
“He took the recovered AK 47 rifle and reported the incident to the ward head, Malam Surajo Madawaki (50).
“Rather than report the matter to the police, the village head called one Hamisu, a notorious leader of the killed terrorist and handed over the recovered AK 47 rifle to him.
“Consequently, Hamisu mobilised his gang, surrounded the village, brought out the gallant farmer and killed him instantly,’’ SP Isah said.
