Gunmen abducted three housewives in the community of old Birnin Yero along the Kaduna-Zaria Highway.
According to local sources in the community, 10 people were abducted when armed men stormed the area around 11 p.m. on Monday.
According to a resident who spoke anonymously to Daily Trust, two sons of the community leader were among the victims.
A number of houses were raided during the operation, he said.
“Most members of the community were unaware of the bandits’ presence in the village since they did not fire shots during the operation.”
Before fleeing, they picked two sons of our community leader and other residents, including three housewives.
State Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, promised to call back but as of the time of filing this report, he had not done so.
