A lecturer at the Federal University, Dutsinma (FUDMA) in Katsina State, Dr Tiri David, has been killed by bandits. David’s killing occurred about ten days after another lecturer at Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto(UDUS), Prof Yusuf Sa’idu, was killed by suspected bandits.

It was gathered that David was killed on Tuesday by bandits who also kidnapped two of his children during the attack. The deceased was the head of the Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension, and Rural Development at the university.

David was killed at about 1:30am at his residence in Yarima Quarters, a housing estate in Dutsinma Local Government Area, sources said

They said the terrorists invaded the community, shooting into the air with sophisticated weapons as they moved straight to the lecturer’s residence where they killed him and abducted two of his children.

The police spokesperson in Katsina, Abubakar Aliyu, confirmed the incident to reporters but said he could not immediately provide details.
