In the wee hours of today, bandits stormed Sabon Tasha GRA in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State but later fled as soldiers stood to retaliate shortly after.
Our reporter learnt that the bandits had initially set a house on fire after realising that their mission to abduct the owner would not be successful.
Initially, the bandits engaged in a shoot-out with the soldiers but later fled to save their lives as the soldiers were more equipped.
According to a source, the bandits had set a house on fire and were about to carry out a house-to-house raid when soldiers arrived.
“We thanked God the Soldiers arrived on time; if not, the story would have been bad because they (bandits) came to pick the house owner, but fortunately, the house was empty, and the bandits set the house on fire out of frustration,” he said.
The Daily Reality also learnt that the bandits attacked the community two days ago and abducted a man, his wife and his daughter.
