A resident of the area, who preferred anonymity, said; “The bandits who came in large numbers invaded the residence of a customs officer, Malam Abubakar Modibbo and kidnapped his wife Asiya Abubakar along his two daughters, Khadijatul Kubra and Hafsat, with one Falalu Ibrahim,”


“The bandits also shot to death one Zaharaddeen Mohammed of Amaru (PICTURED) and Sunusi Sani of Dorayi, who were simply passing by.

Another vigilante group member said the bandits who immediately proceeded to Dorayi village in the outskirt of Zaria rustled a number of cattle. According to him, they also abducted scores of people numbering about 20.


He said the bandits abandoned all their captives in the area and retracted to the bush, following a gun duel with security operatives.


The vigilante member stated that the bandits burnt down the residence of one Alhaji Dalha and two motorcycles before escaping due to intense exchange of fire.
