Gunmen suspected to be bandits have reportedly abducted 77 people at Libere village in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
SaharaReporters quotes AIT as saying that the incident occurred on Wednesday.
According to the report, Aminu Na’Iri, village head of neighbouring Kalla confirned the report.
He said eight members of a family, including the wife and children were among those abducted.
Libere is said to be located around a thick forest across River Kaduna from Kasuwan Magani Kalla village, which makes it difficult for security operatives to respond quickly to attacks in the area.
The incident is coming on the heels of bandits’ attack on Greenfield University situated along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in Chikun local government, with the gunmen kidnapping students and staff.
The Kaduna State Government confirmed on Friday that three of the abducted students were found dead.
