We Now Farm For Bandits,They Rape Our Wives, Daughters At Will, Says Katsina Elder

Social sharing

Bashir Kurfi, an elder and member of the Security Assurance Program for the communities of Katsina narrated the ordeal in an interview session

“You will see a village will be attacked and married women will be kidnapped or they will be gathered in one place and be raped by these bandits,” Mr. Kurfi said. “Now there are even villages where the bandits will call the head of household and ask him to bring his wife or daughter for one week to be with them.”

Mr. Kurfi said further, “The leader of the bandits will come with his boys to the village, they will eject everybody out of the house and rape our children and collect all our belongings…we even farm for them, what is happening is just like the old day’s slavery.”

Mr. Kurfi lamented that while the government dialogues with bandits, no nobody is talking about the victims. This revelation gives insight into the plight of citizens in Katsina and other parts of the country, particularly the North.

President Buhari, whose home state has been badly ravaged by banditry, had in June boasted in an interview, that his regime will leave Nigeria better secured.

The criminals have however become more brazen in their recent attacks as exemplified in the Kaduna train bombing and the attack on the Kuje Medium Security Custodial Centre in the nation’s Federal Capital Territory in July.
