Gunmen suspected to be bandits have attacked Milgoma community in Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, abducting six people.
It was gathered that the gunmen attacked the community in large numbers around 9pm on Friday.
One of those attacked by the bandits, a commercial motorcyclist, is now receiving treatment at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Shika.
Speaking to DailyTrust, a resident disclosed that the commercial motorcyclist was on his way home when he ran into the bandits who opened fire on him.
The resident also disclosed that the bandits abducted a mother and her children but later allowed the woman to go because she was slowing them down.
“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,” he said.
At the time of filing this report, the Kaduna State Government and Police command had not released statements on the incident.
However, the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, asked for time to verify and revert.
