Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Two persons have been killed, and 15 others, including a medical doctor and his family members abducted on Tuesday in Kaduna.

The incident occurred at Sabon Gero, a community in millennium City in which a civilian Joint Task Force (JTF) Commander was not spared.

The terrorists, it was gathered, stormed the community around past 10:00p.m on motorcycles and started shooting sporadically into the air.

It was gathered that the JTF commander and other members immediately opened fire at the bandits but unfortunately he was not aware they were very close to them.

‘The bandits opened fire and hit the commander in his legs and he fell down and they shot him in the head shattering his skull.

“A resident that was also hit with a bullet died on the way to the hospital,” a source narrated.

The source further said two people lost their lives, 16 abducted, while, six were rescued during the attack.

He said the bandits might have targeted the house of a medical doctor in the area as they went straight to his residence and abducted him and six members of his family.

‘They stormed other houses and abducted nine other people,” he added.

A member of the JTF, who gave his name as Isa Usman, confirmed that their commander had been killed by the bandits.

‘We took his corpse to his wife and later buried him. We are just coming from the burial ground,” he said.

Also narrating their ordeal, a resident in the area, Jacob Isa said the situation could have been worse as they quickly informed neighbouring communities who came out to chase away the terrorists.

‘That’s how we were able to rescue six abducted persons,” he stressed.

Security agents are yet to respond to the attack.
