The gunmen were said to have invaded the community around midnight.
According to an eyewitness account, the gunmen came in large numbers and after causing confusion in the area, they kidnapped 18 people as soon they stormed our community, adding, “they( bandits) blocked the major road, thereby preventing residents to escape or visitors to come in to assist us”.
He said further, “they started moving from house to house chasing the people out of their houses. At the end of it, 18 people were abducted. We discovered that 18 people were kidnapped and taken to an unknown destination”.
