Gunmen have abducted a family of eight alongside some other residents of Kofar Gayan area of Zaria.


The attack comes two days after eight students and two lecturers were abducted at the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria.


A student was also killed during the attack.

He, however, said he was trying to gather more details on the attack.


According to NAN, the incident occurred at about 12am on Saturday night around Government Girls Secondary School, Kofar Gayan area of the state.


NAN quoted Abdullahi Mohammed, a resident of the area, as saying no fewer than 12 people were abducted during the attack.


Mohammed reportedly said about eight people were kidnapped from a single house, while others were picked separately.


Hafsat Kusfa, a daughter of one of the victims, was quoted to have said that the bandits broke into their home around 12.01am and assembled them in front of the house.


She added that the bandits, who were about seven in number and carrying guns and marchets, took away eight members of her family, including her parents and siblings.


Kusfa, however, said her parents, as well as some of the kidnapped victims, were later released through the efforts of security men who intercepted the hoodlums.
