Six persons were killed when gunmen in the northern Nigerian state of Katsina invaded three villages while yelling “Allahu Akbar,” a police spokesman said on Monday.

According to Gambo Isah of AFP, the black-clad group attacked the villages of Makers, Dan Sabau, and Pawwa in the Kankara area late on Sunday night, shooting rocket-propelled grenades and firearms. The group was riding motorcycles.

“In a shootout that lasted more than an hour, we killed many of the bandits, but six people from the attacked villages were killed,”

Isah continued.

He mentioned that the cops were searching the shrubbery for the attackers’ bodies.

Although the situation in the northwest of Nigeria is complicated, jihadists frequently utilize the Arabic phrase Allahu Akbar, which means “God is great.”

In this unstable area, gangs engaged in kidnapping and cattle rustling have always existed, but recently there has been worry that jihadists may have gained access to them.

The gangs undertake attacks from their camps in the expansive Rugu forest, which spans the states of Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, and Niger.

In raids on four communities in Katsina state on July 3, bandits killed eighteen locals.
