The Udawa farming community in Kaduna state was thrown into fear as bandits kidnapped 16 farmers, including children, on bush paths to the farm.

Uduwa village is located along the Birnin Gwari highway in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
“They were on their way to the farm when the incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday at about 7 am,” a locale, Yakubu Barauni has said.

“The victims and I are of the same family,” Barauni said.

Head of the affected Kaduna family, Mallam Yakubu Barauni, said he too was shot by the bandits.
“They shoot me on my two legs. Among those abducted were a nursing mother carrying her little girl on her back, three other women, the rest male children as well as male adults.”
