The Kaduna State Police have arrested two of the suspected kidnappers who allegedly attacked Kofar-Gayan Low-Cost Zaria on Sunday, abducting two women and injuring four residents.
ASP Mohammed Jalige, police spokesman, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Zaria on Monday.
Jalige said the police were on top of the situation, adding that investigation into the matter was ongoing.
Alhaji Haruna Sani, a husband to one of the kidnapped housewives said he received a phone call around 10.00 p.m. on Sunday that kidnappers had raided his house.
Sani said he alerted the police who responded immediately and exchanged gunfire for about 25 minutes with the kidnappers.
He said that some of the kidnappers took away his wife, that of his neighbor, and her three children.
Sani however said that the three children were subsequently rescued.
He explained that the kidnappers, who dressed in women outfits, left behind braziers and hijab in his neighbour’s house as they fled.
Sani also said that four residents were wounded when the kidnappers shot at his daughter who ran out of the house to escape.
