The member of Katsina state House of Assembly representing Batsari, Alhaji Jabiru yusufu Yau-Yau has escaped bandits by the whiskers.
Alhaji Jabiru Yau-Yau was waylaid by suspected bandits at Garwa village where he went on a condolence visit.
Our correspondent reports that the lawmaker was told by the villagers that the suspected bandits must have been informed by an informer that the Alhaji Jabiru Yau-Yau was in the village, hence they came on motorcycles and then block the route he entered the village.
But some of the villagers sensing danger quickly told the lawmaker to change route .
While the Bandits were still waiting for Alhaji Jabiru Yau-Yau to come back to them for possible abduction or maiming or even killing, unknown to them that he had been escorted through another roadworthy bushpath.
Some security agents linked up with the lawmaker and led him back to Katsina.
