Bandit terrorists have abducted a retired Nigeria Broadcasting Commission, NBC, director, Alhaji Ahmed Bakori and his 15-year-old daughter, Laila.

Naija News reports that this is coming hours after the abduction of family members of lawmakers in the Katsina State House Assembly.

It was gathered that the terrorists on Monday night attacked Bakori Housing Units in Katsina State, where the retired director lives.

The bandits who stormed the estate with AK 47 rifles and other weapons reportedly whisked away three other residents.

The homes of the victims were raided around 9pm, according to sources.

Others abducted were Alhaji Bello Aminu Bakori, Shamsuddeen Aminu and one Habibu Rabe of Local Education Authority, Bakori.

Local vigilantes who went after the bandits caught up with the armed men in Danja Local Government Area and after an exchange of gunfire, three victims were said to have regained freedom.

But the vigilantes did not succeed in rescuing Abdulkadir and his daughter.

Recall that bandits had abducted the younger sister of the Deputy Speaker of the Katsina State House of Assembly, Hon. Shehu Tafoki.

The victim, identified as Asma’u Dalhatu was said to be preparing for her wedding ceremony before she was kidnapped on Sunday, 5th September.

She was abducted from the residence of the village head which is her family house around 1am on Sunday.
