He said the incident happened around 12:30 am.
Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, and the Police Public Relations Officer, Jalige Mohamed, didn’t answer calls.
This is the latest in a series of attacks across Kaduna State.
Although bandits have been subjecting Kaduna residents to torture, the last few weeks have been very tough.
