Bandits have abducted six people including children at Milgoma community in Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The incident was said to have taken place on Friday night.
The bandits were said to have stormed the community in large numbers.
A commercial motorcyclist, who was attacked, is now receiving treatment at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Shika.
A resident, who asked not to be named, said the commercial motorcyclist was on his way home when he ran into the bandits, who opened fire on him.
He said the mother of the kidnapped children was released when the bandits discovered she couldn’t walk fast enough.
“The bandits initially abducted the children together with their mother but they discovered the mother had a problem with her legs so they left her behind and went away with the children. The other three people were abducted within the community,” he said.
Last week, babies were abducted from National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre in Zaria.
A total of 121 students were also kidnapped at a secondary school in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna.
