Some bandits were reported to have invaded Ungwan Keke in the 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 taken away by the hoodlums in the raid that took place on Monday night.
The attack is coming barely three weeks after bandits raided nearby Sabon Gero Community of the new Millenium City in the same LGA, killing a Civilian Joint Task Force’s Commander and a resident of the area.
At the same time, 16 people, including a medical doctor, were abducted.
Although the state government or the police command had yet to confirm the Monday night incident, a source said the police had visited the attack scene.
“As we speak, the police had just gone there (Keke) where the attack happened. The attackers came around 9:00 pm during downpour. Many were abducted,” the source added.
