Gunmen wielding sophisticated weapons suspected to be bandits have attacked the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria quarters in Kaduna, kidnapping no fewer than nine persons.
The nine persons kidnapped involve a whole family of six, a housewife, and her two children. They were said to be whisked away by the hoodlums after sporadic shooting in the air.
It was gathered that the bandits entered into the FAAN quarters through the airport runway at about 12:30 am on Saturday.
Sources within the airport environment said the inferno lasted for hours as military personnel engaged the criminals in a fierce gun battle, but sadly the abductors had their way.
Reports said the bandits later went away on motorcycles with their abductees to an unknown destination.
This is the first time the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria quarters is witnessing such an unfortunate attack despite the high rate of security in the state.
Efforts to get reactions from the security authorities proved abortive as at the time of filing this report.
