Two persons have been killed and some buildings, including a church, were set ablaze when gunmen, suspected to be bandits attacked Baka and Kikwari in Kajuru and Igabi council areas of Kaduna state.
The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the incidents happened on Sunday.
He said in a statement Sunday night hat nine persons were also kidnapped in the Sabon Birni area of the state.
“Troops based in the Sabon Birni general area were mobilised to the location. They engaged the bandits and rescued some captives from one of the bandit groups, while another group had earlier escaped with another set of hostages,” Aruwan said.
