Bandits have kidnapped no fewer than six people, including children, at Milgoma community in Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The incident was said to have occurred around 9pm on Friday when the bandits stormed the community in large numbers.
One of those attacked, a commercial motorcyclist, is currently receiving treatment at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Shika.
It was learnt that the commercial motorcyclist was on his way home when he ran into the bandits who opened fire on him.
Mother of the kidnapped children was said to have been released by the bandits because she couldn’t walk fast enough.
“The bandits initially abducted the children together with their mother but they discovered the mother had a problem with her legs so they left her behind and went away with the children. The other three people were abducted within the community,” a resident said.
