A highly reliable source said the bandits numbered about 30; they were armed with sophisticated weapons with which they shot sporadically into the air as they attacked the community.

“The joint personnel of Kaduna State Vigilance Service, the military and the police swiftly responded to a distress call.

“On sighting the security personnel, the bandits opened fire and in the process killed the soldier,’’ the source said.

Malam Haruna Shika a resident of the area said the six kidnapped children were rescued at Kasuwan Da’a in Zaria local government area.
