Two housewives have been abducted by gunmen in Kasangwai village a few metres away from Akoti village in Kachia LGA of Kaduna State.
A resident, Usman Garba, said the incident happened around 8pm on Monday when the bandits invaded a house and whisked away the victims amid sporadic gunshots.
He said the husband of the victims travelled to Jere town when the bandits struck.
Meanwhile, troops have again arrested another suspected bandits’ informant in Janjala community in Kagarko Chiefdom on Monday.
A resident, Ibrahim Adamu, who confirmed the arrest through telephone to our reporter on Tuesday, said the troops who came into the village around 2pm in a Toyota Hilux arrested the victim who tried to escape after sighting them.
