Bandits on Monday night invaded the Keke B Community in Millennium City, in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, and kidnapped scores of residents.
According to Daily Trust, the incident occurred at 08:30pm while many residents were preparing to retire for the day.
An eyewitness, Muhammad Salihu, said the bandits operated unchallenged and moved from house to house.
Salihu, a resident, said, “Many of us were still outside when the bandits attacked because it was quite early, around 8.30pm. They came in a large number, shooting sporadically and brandishing weapons.
“They broke into people’s houses one after the other and kidnapped the occupants. One person, a motorcycle mechanic, was able to escape from the kidnappers, but they went away with 36 residents.”
There is no official comment from security authorities at the time of this report.
Our correspondent, however, gathered that policemen are presently in the community to access the situation.
