According to reports, the heavily armed bandits shot sporadically as they went from house to house kidnapping their victims and taking them to an unknown destination.
An eyewitness who spoke with THISDAY said that the incident happened at about 7.30am.
Following the development, hundreds of Youths and other villagers have poured out on the road, blocking the Abuja- Suleja – Kaduna Road thereby preventing the free flow of traffic on both sides of the road.
