Some bandits were said to have invaded the staff quarters of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, Kaduna and abducted six family members, a woman and two children.

At the end of the operation which lasted for several hours according to an eyewitness, nine persons were kidnapped by the bandits.

The FAAN quarters is located near the Kaduna International Airport in the Igabi Local Government Area of the state.

Sunday PUNCH gathered that the bandits stormed the area on motorcycles at 1am on Saturday after gaining access to the quarters through the airport runway.

It was further learnt that the bandits invaded the quarters with sophisticated weapons but were able to gain access to only one house.

The source noted that soldiers engaged the bandits in a gun duel and the bandits were able to escape with nine persons.

The source added, “The gunmen invaded the area and forcefully broke into one of the houses in the quarters.  But some soldiers came and engaged them in a gun battle. The soldiers could only prevent them from abducting more persons because the bandits came with AK47 rifles.

“The attack lasted for hours as the soldiers tried to resist the attack but the bandits had their way. They went away with nine people, including six people from a single family.’’

Efforts to get the reaction of the state police command were futile as of the time of filing this report.

The command’s spokesperson, ASP Mohammed Jalige, neither picked calls made to his mobile nor replied to a text message.
