It was gathered that the firepower of the terrorists was by far superior to that of the security forces manning the checkpoint.

“I am sure that these terrorists were here just to test ground on how best to enter the newly established Katsina Correctional Service building that’s directly facing the Katsina Army Barracks.

Recall that barely three days ago, the terrorists also killed a police inspector, Idris Musa and burnt his car around Makera Quarters, Kwakware Community along Katsina-Jibia Road.
