BANDITS KILL SEVEN, KIDNAP THREE IN FRESH ATTACK ON KADUNA COMMUNITIES
Bandits have attacked Katarmal village in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State and killed seven persons, while four people sustained varying degrees of injuries.
In a similar incident, the bandits attacked Unguwar Tagwaye Doka in Kuriga Ward, also of Chikun local Government where they kidnapped three persons.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday, said gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in a separate raid, abducted four persons in the same LGA.
He said security agencies are conducting investigations at the affected locations.
The Commissioner said security operatives had since launched an investigation into the various incidents and that the government awaited their reports.
Kaduna State has been experiencing a series of security challenges recently.
On Thursday, about seven persons were killed following an attack from bandits at Gora gan village in Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area of the State.
The Thursday incident which resulted in the setting ablaze of five houses would have been worse if not for the intervention of security operatives who came to rescue the residents.
