Unknown gunmen have killed two people in a village, Tsohuwar Gwari in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna state.

The gunmen reportedly stormed the village at 12pm on Saturday kidnapped nine people including a newly wedded bride in the area.

Three people, however, managed to escape from their abductors leaving the other six, a source who did not want to be mentioned discussed with Daily Trust.

The source said, ” The incident happened at 12pm on Saturday night in Tsohuwar Gwari village, one of the oldest villages in the area. There is a popular river in the area known as Kwarita where people selling medicine for pile are always seen so it is a busy place which kind of never sleeps. The village also has a bad road which is used by the terrorists to terrorise people plying the road.

“They stopped people taking advantage of the bad road, killed two people on the spot and kidnapped nine even though three people where able to escape and have also narrated what happened.”

He called on the government to as a matter of urgency come to the aide of the people saying, ” We are gradually going extinct.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mukhtar Aliyu confirmed the incident.

He however said he will get in touch with the DPO in-charge of the area for more details and get back to this correspondent.

It could be recalled that just recently 11 soldiers where killed in the area by bandits.
