Bandits have killed two persons and abducted an Arabic and Islamic studies teacher in Kuregu community in Zaria Local Government of Kaduna State.

The incident happened on Friday around 10:pm when the bandits stormed the community.

Daily Trust had reported on January 19, 2021 how Professor Aliyu Mohammed of Abubakar Tafawa University Department of Agriculture , Bauchi who live close to the community was abducted and how an undisclosed amount was paid as ransom before he regained his freedom.

A resident of Kuregu community, who craved for anonymity told Daily Trust that the two persons killed were members of the community.

He said the victims were just at the wrong place at the wrong time because the bandits came asking for the houses of wealthy individuals in the community when they came across the victims and shot them before abducting an Islamic studies teacher in the community.

The State Police Command Public Relations Officer ASP Jalige promised to call back after getting details from the area but didn’t do so as at the time of filling this report.
