Bandits on Tuesday stormed Keke ‘A’ and Keke ‘B’ areas of New Millennium city and kidnapped the wife of a military officer and six others in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the bandits invaded the areas around 11.00 pm and operated for an hour before the security operatives arrived at the scene.
A source said the bandits came on a targeted mission to a particular house at the Keke ‘A’ area.
According to the source “The officer they came for, was not at home, so the kidnappers broke into the house and picked his wife.
“They also kidnapped another man, who is the immediate neighbour of the military officer. In fact, the neighbour was picked up alongside his eight-year-old daughter. They eventually dropped the daughter when her mother shouted at top of her voice.”
“While, all that was happening, another man who was just returning home in his car at that time ran into the kidnappers. He was the third person that was taken away.
“As of this morning, we saw many shoes on the ground and we became scared that those must be the shoes of the people kidnapped but one of the people who escaped the attack told us the shoes belonged to those who ran away,” the source said.
