Gunmen suspected to be bandits have nine residents of Sabon Tasha in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the bandits attacked the community on Wednesday night at about 11 pm and kidnapped six people, including a landlord and his tenants from one house.
Hours later, It was said that the bandits also called to demand N20 million in ransom for each of the nine people kidnapped.
However, residents of the area staged a protest hours after armed bandits abducted nine people in the community.
It was gathered that the protesters were forced to vacate the road by policemen deployed to maintain law and order.
It comes two days after armed bandits abducted 121 students at Bethel Baptist High School in the same Local Government.
The latest abduction in Sabo led to protest by the residents as they called on the state government to end the rates of insecurity in the state.
Speaking with Daily Trust on Thursday, a resident of Sabo said that the people are tired of these abductions.
“The bandits kidnapped 9 people on Wednesday in the community just two days after they abducted 121 students at Bethel Baptist high school. This is disturbing,” he said.
