One Habibu of Sayen Lemu in Dutsen Abba of Zaria local government area, Kaduna State has been killed by bandits and three of his children kidnapped.
Sayen Lemu is a village close to Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria and also not far away from where the bandits operated on Monday along the Kaduna-Zaria highway.
A source said that the bandits stormed the house of the deceased around 11pm on Wednesday night and shot him (Alhaji Habibu) dead before abducting his children.
“We don’t think they were hired killers. We believed they are part of the bandits terrorizing the area in the recent past.”
Our source explained that the area has been recording several attacks by bandits in the last year, lamenting that no measure has been taken to save guard lives from the frequent attacks.
Calls put through to the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige to confirm the incident was not responded to up to the time of filing this report.
