The angry residents also barricaded the Katsina/Kankara Highway and set bonfires along the road.
Bandits mostly in midnight raids have slaughtered dozens of residents across the state, displacing hundreds of individuals and households in the process including pregnant women and children, who now beg for food and water to survive on daily basis.
