By Femi Stephen

A 13-year-old boy, Abdulkarim Mati is in the custody of the Katsina Police Command after he killed two bandits in a forest.

This has led some to call for the boy to be given protection although others are saying he should be enlisted in the police academy.

The Police Public Relations for Katsina said Mati was an errand boy for bandit chief Ardo Nashaware, in Birnin Magaji forest in Zamfara State.

According to him, Mati fled the forest where he he was said to have killed the bandits. But police officers arrested him where he was hiding.

The police spokesman said that the minor claimed that robbers kidnapped him from his parents.

They thereafter trained him on how to use AK-47 weapons and be on guard for abducted victims.

“The boy, who demonstrated skills in handling AK-47, also confessed to have been bullied by some elderly bandits, who provoked him, and as a result, picked an AK-47 rifle and shot dead two of the elderly bandits,” Isah said.
