Bandits raided Ungwan Keke in the New Millenium settlement, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Monday night, abducting scores of residents in the vicinity.
According to a source who spoke with Punch, no less than 30 of the residents were whisked away by the bandits in an attack that comes barely three weeks after bandits raided nearby Sabon Gero Community of the new Millenium City in the same LGA, killing a Civilian Joint Task Force’s Commander and a resident of the area.
The latest kidnapping report is yet to be confirmed by the state government and the police but another source disclosed that the latter visited the scene of the attack.
"As we speak, the police had just gone there (Keke) where the attack happened. The attackers came around 9:00 pm during the downpour. Many were abducted,” the source added.
