Unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have invaded Gambar Sabon Layi community in Tafawa Balewa local government area of Bauchi State and killed the hamlet head of the area and four other residents on Saturday night.
Our correspondent gathered that the gunmen also kidnapped one person.
A resident of the community told journalists that the gunmen came in the night and shot sporadically into the air to scare residents away before carrying out their nefarious activities.
Another eyewitness, Mr Manasseh Danladi, said: “Yesterday (Saturday), some people came to our village and killed my uncle with four others while Mr Daniel was taken away.”
Attempts to reach out to the Bauchi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, for the Police Command’s reaction on the incident proved abortive as at the time filing of this report.
