Gunmen last night attacked the residence of a businessman Mansur Abubakar in Malumfashi, Katsina State and abducted his 11-year-old daughter Nana.
Eyewitnesses say the gunmen arrived at about 11.30 pm on motor bikes and cars shooting sporadically into the air just as people ran for their lives.
A source said the men condoned off the residence of the businessman before taking away the girl and a car.
Unconfirmed reports say two of the hoodlums and a police were injured during the fracas. The injured hoodlums are said to have been arrested by the police.
However, efforts to reach the police as at press time proved abortive as the command spokesman DSP Gambo Isah did not answer nor reply a text enquiry sent to him.
