Armed men suspected to be bandits terrorizing some parts of Kaduna State have attacked the Zango community in Samaru, Zaria town and kidnapped unspecified number of residents.
DAILY POST gathered that the incident occured on Friday morning when the attackers stormed the community with sophisticated weapons, shooting sporadically before whisking the victims away from the scene.
The operation, which lasted for over 30 minutes, occured at about 1am when most residents were fast asleep.
When contacted by DAILY POST, the state’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige said he will inquire and revert.
However, Senator Shehu Sani who represented the Kaduna Central during the 8th National Assembly, confirmed the incident.
In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, the former lawmaker urged institutions in the affected area to be proactive.
The tweet reads, “Early this morning, Bandits stormed Zango area Samaru, Zaria & kidnapped scores of people.
“Ahmadu Bello University main campus, College of Aviation and Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology located in the same area must take immediate preventive security steps to secure lives”.
