He said the gunmen invaded Faruk’s residence, whisked away his daughter after shooting sporadically.
He added that a yet-to-be identified woman was hit by a stray bullet in her leg
“The entire area was thrown into a state of pandemonium because of the sporadic gunshots,” a source told SaharaReporters.
Kebbi, like other North-West states, has in the last few years faced devastating attacks from armed bandits and kidnappers.
