Bandits have again attacked Kofar Gayan and Kofar Kona areas of Zaria and abducted some residents.
The attack was carried out last weekend by some yet-to-be-identified gunmen.
ASP Mohammed Jalige, Police Public Relations Officer, Kaduna State Command, who confirmed the incident, said he was trying to gather details about the attack.
However, an official of Kaduna State Vigilance Service (KadVS), said the incident occurred between 12.01 and 1.00 am on Saturday.
The official, who declined to give details on the exact number of people abducted by the kidnappers, said the incident occurred around Government Girls Secondary School, Kofar Gayan.
An eyewitness, Malam Abdullahi Mohammed, a resident of the area, who spoke to newsmen said that no fewer than 12 people were abducted during the operation.
He added that about eight people were kidnapped from a single house, while others were picked separately.
Similarly, the daughter of one of the victims, Hafsat Kusfa, said the bandits broke into their home around 12.01 am and assembled them in front of the house.
She added that the bandits, who were about seven in number carrying guns and marchets, took away eight members of her family, including her father, mother, sisters, and brothers.
