KADUNA – 18 persons, including four nursing mothers and their babies, at Mando village in the Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State by unknown Gunmen.

In a statement, the Chairman, Birnin-Gwari Emirate Progressives Union, Salisu Haruna, said “After relative calm along the Birnin-Gwari-Funtua Road after the sustained onslaught by security forces, we regret to inform the general public of an attack at Mando village, a distance of five kilometres from Birnin-Gwari town.


“In the latest incident, bandits attacked Mando shortly after midnight and abducted 18 persons, including four nursing mothers.

“The bandits did a house-to-house search for grains, other food items and property, whose value has yet to be quantified.

“The 18 persons abducted include four nursing mothers with their babies and 10 able men.

“We are calling on the security personnel, particularly the Air Force Field Base in Birnin-Gwari which is just three kilometres to Mando and the government to be more proactive in protecting lives and property.

According to PUNCH, the AK-47-wielding bandits raided from house to house in search of foodstuffs and looted other property.
