Ibrahim Dosara, Commis­sioner for Information, who confirmed the incident, said the bandits also razed the dis­trict head’s home.

“The security agencies, including the Nigerian Air Force are currently on the trail of the bandits,” Dosara stated.

A source said the assail­ants invaded the area in the early hours of Wednesday and unleashed mayhem on residents.

Residents said dozens of armed men stormed the community about 1a.m and went house to house, picking identified targets and shoot­ing them dead.

The criminals also ab­ducted unspecified number of people, including women and children, who were most­ly captured when they were trying to escape.

“However, with the com­bined efforts of the local vig­ilantes and the security oper­atives the abducted residents were rescued.

“The armed men were intercepted at a spot near Karakkai community. The security operatives mobilised and the local vigilantes helped to block their passage.

“After a heavy gunfight, the armed criminals abandoned the abducted victims prob­ably because they were out gunned and outnumbered,” a resident identified Aliyu said.
