Notorious Terrorists Kingpin, Usman Modi Killed In Katsina

A notorious terrorist leader, Usman Modi Modi, also known as ‘Kartakwa’, has been reportedly killed in Katsina State.

Reports obtained by Melody news revealed that the terrorist was among those who were neutralized in a recent clash between rival factions in Katsina on Tuesday.

It was reported that the violent confrontation between the rival groups started at 2:00 pm between the notorious terrorist leaders Usman Modi Modi from Kanta Camp against Abdulkarim Faca Faca from Marina Camp.

In the course of the clash, Usman Modi Modi and four others were fatally wounded according to Vanguard.

Before the fatal incident, Usman Modi Modi and his group were reportedly causing fear and havoc in the local communities of Safana and Kurfi local government areas, while Abdulkarim Faca Faca and his followers were known for similar activities in Marina, Safana, and Batsari.

Meanwhile, over 500 individuals have been reportedly abducted, and 50 villages have been ravaged by terrorists, commonly referred to as bandits, in the North-West region of Zamfara State.

Tragically, one of the recent assaults resulted in the loss of five lives, including two police officers, on Monday.

A member of the House of Representatives representing Zurmi/Shinkafi Federal Constituency, Bello Hassan Shinkafi, confirmed the incidents to newsmen, highlighting that numerous communities within his constituency have fallen victim to these terrorists.

According to him, the bandits now operate with impunity, disregarding the time of day or night, as they carry out their heinous acts of killing, injuring, and abducting innocent people.

Consequently, survivors have been compelled to seek refuge in safer communities elsewhere, the lawmaker admits.

“Not just the Garin Gora community, the entire Zurmi Local Government Area is not at peace because of frequent banditry attacks which always claim lives, besides the wounded and abducted.

“On Monday, they killed five persons, including two policemen in broad daylight at Gidan Shaho in the Nassarawa district. They also abducted over 30 persons there. As we speak, those abducted have not been completely accounted for,” SaharaReporters quoted Shinkafi saying.

He observed the necessity of devising a new strategy to address the problem of bandits in the Northwest states. He emphasized the insufficiency of manpower in the area, stating this as a fact.

Furthermore, he expressed concern about the prolonged deployment of military personnel in Zamfara, some of whom have served for eight, nine, or even 10 years without relief. He said the law of diminishing returns will eventually affect their performance, so it is crucial to replace them with fresh personnel.
