Bandits Killed Two in Jibia Gold Min.
Illegal mining activities along the border axis is now becoming another issue that attracts hundreds of jobless youths.
Many are lucky to hit the jack put as soon as they arrive at such sights while others become victims of the illegal trade.
Mining is characterised by many risky undertakings that can commute lives in a blink of an eye.
However, the youths in their numbers have now converted to a new site in jibia after being chased from neighbouring states.
Bakin gulbi in jibia town is now hosting more than three hundred miners among whom were attacked by the bandits on Thursday sixth at night.
Similarly, about 36 labourers were kidnapped by the bandits who are demanding the payment of resume and a levy on all the miners before they can be allowed to continue with the mining activities.
Although the security presence is visible at the camp since the attack, the possibilities of bandits attacks are obvious because of the location of the camp and transactions taking place.
It is also being insinuated that the Katsina state government is likely to also close the sites to avoid further escalation of insecurity in the area.
