Suspected terrorists on Wednesday attacked a low-cost housing estate at Kofar Gayan in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State and kidnapped six people including a Customs officer and his son.
Police authorities in the state are yet to confirm the incident but a resident of the area told Channels Television that the bandits invaded the estate at about 8 pm on Wednesday, and started shooting sporadically. They moved straight to the residence of the customs officer and thereafter, took him away along with his son.
According to the source, the bandits trailed the Customs officer from his family house in Zaria city down to the estate. Four other people within the estate were later abducted by the gunmen.
The incident comes two days after bandits attacked an Abuja-Kaduna-bound train, killed eight people, injured 26, and kidnapped an unspecified number of people.
