Unknown gunmen have attacked and abducted many residents of Sutti Village in Tangaza Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
It was gathered that the armed bandits kidnapped a new bride, nursing mother, her baby and many others.
The nursing mother was identified as wife of Magajin Garin Sulli, a traditional chief in the town.
Residents disclosed that the gunmen stormed the village shooting sporadically into the air to scare people in the community, according to SaharaReporters.
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.
President Muhammadu Buhari had recently directed security chiefs to restrategize in order to secure the northern region.
