At least seven people were abducted when bandits attacked Zango community in Samaru Zaria town, Kaduna state.
The bandits were said to have invaded the community from different entry points around 1 am on Friday, when the residents were sleeping.
“The bandits also attacked other houses within the area as they fired several shots which lasted for about 30 minutes,” a witness said.
“I first received a call from my brother, saying kidnappers have invaded Zango, then I started hearing sounds of heavy gunshots in front of our house. I quickly went to check the kids. I saw that they are still sleeping.”
