Some gunmen have abducted two brides in Ciki Da Falo, a village in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna state. The men were said to have also killed two policemen at a checkpoint as well as one official of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, on Thursday.
A resident told newsmenthat 15 people were abducted and the incident happened around 5pm.
Austin Iwar, state Police commissioner, confirmed the incident to newsmen but did not give details.
Birnin-Gwari has, in recent times, made headlines for armed banditry, cattle rustling and kidnapping. Two weeks ago, Zubairu Gwari, emir of Birnin Gwari, asked his subjects to defend themselves against those invading their communities.
