“On their arrival, the hoodlums were said to have been splashing hot millet-inclined drink prepared by the residents to break the fast on small children and women and eventually carted away property worth millions of naira,” the resident said.

Their abduction is the latest in a series of kidnappings in Katsina and other states especially in the North-West and North-East regions.
