“In the latest incident, armed bandits attacked Mando shortly after midnight around 1.30 am and abducted eighteen people, including four nursing mothers,” the statement read.
“The armed bandits did a house-to-house search for grains, other food items and property whose value is yet to be quantified.
“The eighteen people abducted include four nursing mothers with their babies and ten able men.
“We are calling on the security personnel, particularly the Airforce Field Base Birnin-Gwari that is just three kilometres to Mando, and the governments, to be more proactive in protecting lives and property.
“We equally urged our citizens to assist in reporting suspicious elements and their collaborators.”
