Suspected armed robbers on Wednesday killed a policeman attached to WAPA Shopping Mall in Katsina state.

The suspects carted away an undisclosed amount of money after killing the officer.

In another incident, unknown gunmen abducted a 14-year-old girl in Kankia local government area of Katsina state.

Salisu Mai-Tiles, father of the victim, said the gunmen invaded his residence at Sabuwar-Abuja quarters in Kankia at about 1:30am on Thursday.

He said three well-armed persons broke into his residence and asked for money, while the remaining gang members stayed outside.

“They asked me to give them money, which I did; whatever they asked we never objected to their demand to save our lives, but unfortunately, they went with my 14-year-old daughter,” he said.

The gang members reportedly blocked Katsina-Kano road in Kankia and robbed motorists at gunpoint.

Efforts to get the reaction of the state police command was not successful as its spokesman, Isa Gambo did not respond to phone calls and SMS text message sent to him.
