Bandits have abducted two housewives during an attack in Zaria, Kaduna State.
The bandits were said to have invaded Kofar Kuyambana low-cost Housing Estate in Zaria on Sunday night in large numbers on motorcycles and started shooting sporadically, before taking the victims away.
However, Kaduna state police command through its Spokesman, Mohammed Jalige said that two of the four kidnapped women were rescued by its personnel.
He explained that the police, in collaboration with members of the community, were able to repel the attackers from taking more people, adding that two of the bandits were arrested.
The police spokesman said that a manhunt of the kidnappers has commenced with a view to arresting them and rescuing the victims. Kaduna State has been facing myriads of security challenges, notably armed bandits who kidnap for ransom and killing their victims in some cases.
