Reports reaching MyNigeria indicate that about 36 residents of Keke B Community in Millennium City, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, have reportedly been kidnapped.

Sources say the abduction happened at the close of day on Monday, July 25.

An eyewitness who spoke to Daily Trust said that the bandits, who operated unchallenged, moved from house to house.

According to Muhammad Salihu, a resident, “Many of us were still outside when the bandits attacked because it was quite early, around 8.30pm. They came in a large number, shooting sporadically and brandishing weapons.

“They broke into people’s houses one after the other and kidnapped the occupants. One person, a motorcycle mechanic, was able to escape from the kidnappers, but they went away with 36 residents.”

There has not been official confirmation from Mohammed Jalige, Police spokesman in Kaduna as several attempts to reach him proved futile.

Our correspondent, however, gathered that policemen are presently in the community to access the situation.

Daily Trust recalls that a month ago, seven residents of the same community were kidnapped including a man, his wife and their housemaids.
