A former Katsina state commissioner of Education Prof. “Halimatu Sa’adiya Idris” was shot dead by Bandits last night along Kaduna/Abuja road on Sunday. The attack occurred near Gidan Busa village, located between Jere and Kateri.

According to Daily Nigerian, one of the survivors from the scene said an army officer and a policeman were among those killed by the gunmen.

“There is an army officer travelling with his orderly and daughter. The orderly escaped with gunshot but they killed the army officer and his daughter on the spot,” Haruna Isa, a VW Golf driver who survived the attack said.

“There is another person they killed after identifying that he was a policeman. Several other passengers were killed, while many were abducted.”

Witnesses said the security officers refused to engage the kidnappers on the premise that “they were waiting for reinforcement”.
