10 killed in Recent Herdsmen, Farmers Clash in Katsina


KATSINA – Not less than 10 people were allegedly killed in a clash between herdsmen and farmers in Safana LGA, Katsina State.

The Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdulmumini Kabir Usman revealed this on Wednesday.

The Katsina Monarch dropped the hint when he received at his palace a group, Queen Dijah Women and Children Awareness Initiative working around matters of drug abuse, rape and violence against women.

Dr. Usman said the rogues or bandits carried out such atrocious acts under the influence of drug abuse.

In his statement, “On Monday, we got report that Fulani herdsmen stormed Safana, invaded farm lands and killed 10 persons.

“The miscreants or bandits must have carried out the atrocities under influence of drug abuse. You will see a child kill his mother and have sex with her.

“The rate of drug abuse is not decreasing instead it is on the increase.

“And the worrying thing is women whom are supposed to give the children proper upbringing are also involved in drug abuse.

“I urge you to go to the nooks and crannies. Discuss with relevant stakeholders like the elders, traditional and religious leaders and others to champion a course on the ugly menace and way forward,” Dr. Usman said.

Earlier, the Chair of the Group, Hajiya Khadijah Saulawa said the organization is set out to give back to the society their own contribution towards a crime free society through sensitization and awareness on the dangers related with drug abuse and other social vices.
