Armed bandits in the early hour of Saturday attacked the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, quarters, at the Kaduna airport and abducted 9 persons. Those kidnapped included a family of 6 and another housewife and her two children. It was reported that the bandits gained access to the quarters through the airport runway, at about 12.30am.
The reports revealed that the screaming of those kidnapped got the attention of the military personnel around the area who mobilised and engaged the bandits in a gun battle that lasted for several hours
This could not prevent the bandit from taking some of the victims away. According to reports, the “bandits went away with their victims on motorcycles”.
The spokesperson for the FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu who confirmed the attack, disclosed that the quarters housed different personnel from various agencies of the aviation industry.
