There was pandemonium in Birshin Fulani Bauchi State when gunmen invaded the area and allegedly kidnapped a nursing mother identified as Rukayyat Odedoyin.
According to neighbours, the kidnappers who were about 10 in number invaded the area about 12am and forced themselves into the building by breaking the main door before gaining entrance into the house.
After succeeding in breaking into the house, they were said to have gone away with the woman whose husband had just been transferred to Kaduna State.
“About 12 midnight, we started hearing sporadic gunshots from different directions around our house. We woke up and thought of having cover.
“We then heard people jumping the fence trying to gain entrance into the house of our neighbour. They were there from 12 midnight to 1.30 am.
“By the time we came out, they had left with the woman leaving behind her three children,”
a neighbour who refused to give her name told journalists.
