Muhammad further explained that “It was while they were scaring the people with gun shots that they killed the two victims who came out in the confusion.
“We tried to raise alarm to security agencies who were stationed in different places along Sokoto/Gusau road, but everyone was afraid of being sighted by the assailants who held powerful fire arms,” he said.
He said the bandits went to the residence of one Dan Haja, a business man, beat him with iron rods and inflicted serious injuries on him after which they went away with his wife who is a nursing mother and her three months old baby.
He also said the bandits moved to the house of a retired Director-General in the state government, Alhaji Sani Abdullahi, and picked him too along with six other persons and disappeared.
“At a later time, they called to demand for a ransom of 50 million naira for the release of those abductees,” Muhammad said.
