Bandits attack Sokoto community, abduct nursing mother, baby, others

Armed bandits over the weekend attacked a community in Sokoto State, kidnapping many residents of the area.

SaharaReporters gathered that the victims include a new bride, nursing mother and her baby.

The incident happened at Sutti Village under Tangaza Local Government Area of the state.

Residents said the heavily-armed bandits shot sporadically into the air, scaring residents.

The nursing mother was identified as wife of Magajin Garin Sulli, a traditional chief in the town.

It was gathered that the bandits also kidnapped a yet-to-be ascertained number of traders along Balle-Tangaza Road in the state.

Killings and kidnapping for ransom have continued in Northern Nigeria despite security reinforcement in the region.
