Gunman shot dead, residents abducted In fresh armed men attack
Residents of Unguwar Bulus and Unguwar Gimbiya communities in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State were killed on Thursday when bandits invaded the communities.
Reports say that one of the attackers was also gunned down in the exchange of fire that ensued between the bandits and security operatives during the attack.
Residents said they heard gunshots that lasted for hours, forcing many of them to flee.
A resident, whose cousin was killed during the attack, described the experience as terrible.
Ben Maigari said his cousin was shot by the bandits, while his uncle (the boy’s father) was abducted at Unguwar Bulus.
He gave the name of his cousin as Lewis Elkana.
“We heard the terrible gunshots because people had not gone to bed when the bandits arrived the communities. They killed my cousin and abducted his father. Two other residents were killed, but the people also killed one of the bandits,” he said.
He said the young man would be buried later on Friday.
Calls to the State Police Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, were unanswered.
