Some bandits were said to have invaded Ungwan Keke in New Millenium settlement, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State and abducted scores of residents of the area.
A source told one of our correspondents that no fewer than 30 residents of the area were abducted by the hoodlums during the raid on Monday night.
The raid came barely three weeks after bandits attacked the nearby Sabon Gero community in the new Millennium City in the same region, killing a commander of the Civilian Joint Task Force and a resident of the area.
At the same time, 16 people, including a doctor, were kidnapped.
Although the state government or the police command have not yet confirmed Monday night’s incident, a source said police visited the site of the attack.
“As we speak, the police were just there (Keke) where the attack took place.
The attackers came around 9 p.m. in pouring rain. Many were dragged,” the source added.
