A woman and her 3 children in the Mararaban Rido community of Kaduna state have been kidnapped by bandits.
Nigeriacrime.com learned that the bandits also killed another member of the community.
Although the police in Kaduna were yet to react to the development, locals said the bandits wielding sophisticated weapons overpowered the local vigilantes, broke into the family house and kidnapped the mother of 3 and her children.
ASP Mansir Hassan, Spokesperson of the Police Command, could not pick up calls at the weekend.
Locals said the husband was lucky to be away, when the hoodlums struck at the family house, at about 8.30 pm on Saturday.
“A man was killed, he is a younger brother to the husband of the woman who the bandits took away with her 3 children. In fact, the entire Anguwan Musa area of Mararaban Rido, is now in fear and confusion,” the local told journalists.
He said the bandits came with ” big guns and shot repeatedly for about half an hour to scare members of the community, our vigilante members couldn’t save the situation,” he said.
“We thought this thing had gone, but we are now in fear, we are confused. Kidnappers have returned,” he lamented.
” We are appealing to the security agencies to help us and deploy their operatives to our community. The bandits are in groups and have been terrorising our area in recent times,” he said
