Gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted a woman and her three children in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to Channels Television, eyewitnesses said the bandits stormed Milgoma, a town opposite Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) in Shika, Zaria, on Friday, and took the woman and her three kids away after breaking into their home.
It was said that that kidnappers took the victims to an unknown destination.
While the Kaduna State police command has not confirmed the development, locals said the bandits came through a village called ‘Nasarawan Buhari’ and later went away with the four victims through another village called ‘Biye’.
The woman’s husband, who is said to be a lecturer at the Federal University Dutsima in Katsina State, was not around when the incident occurred.
A resident of the community disclosed that some members of a local vigilante were able to repel the bandits from taking away more people.
