Six persons have been reportedly killed by armed bandits at Fadaman Rimi Community in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Naija News understands that two persons, including a physically-challenged person, were kidnapped by gunmen on Thursday in Kgosi Gadani Village in the same Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
An eyewitness said the bandits, who invaded the village around 6.00 a.m. Saturday, shot indiscriminately, killing six persons on the spot while scores sustained gunshot wounds.
He said: “I can’t say how many they (bandits) were but they came in large numbers with sophisticated weapons. And they came into the village around 6.00 a.m. They shot indiscriminately.
“As our people heard the gunshots, they ran to safety. Most of our people ran into the bush while the gunmen shot at them as they ran for their dear lives.
“Gunmen took away cows and other properties.”
Spokesperson of the Kaduna State Police Command, DSP Yakubu Sabo, could not confirm the incident.
He, however, admitted that he got a call from somebody over the attacks by bandits.
