He revealed that the terrorists also fired some shots along Katsina Ring road which is very close to the city, while residents of the area said no security personnel was seen during the over 45-minutes operation by the terrorists which happened in broad daylight.

SP Gambo Isah, the police spokesman in Katsina, when contacted, confirmed the attack and said one person was killed and two others injured.
