Bandits have again abducted five people in Dallatu and Kasuwar Da’a areas of Dutsen Abba in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
This is happening 24 hours after bandits blocked the Kaduna-Zaria expressway and killed three people while abducting scores.
Kaduna State Police Command is yet to react to reports of the attack on the two communities but residents said the bandits, who stormed Dallatu village around 1am on Wednesday kidnapped two people and proceeded to Kasuwar Da’a village where they abducted six others, amongst them three children.
However, sources told Daily Trust that the three children were released Wednesday morning leaving five people in captivity.
Bandits had attacked motorists plying the Kaduna-Zaria expressway in an operation that lasted close to three hours and claimed the lives of three commuters.
