A 90-year-old woman has been kidnapped by gunmen who stormed Kurya Madaro village in Kaura Namoda Local Government Area of Zamfara State, on Thursday night.

Also kidnapped from the community were four young men, two of whom were members of the same family.

It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the village around 12am and abducted the nonagenarian, Hajiya Aisha, after failing to locate her son, Alhaji Danbaba, a businessman who was said to be their target.

“When they couldn’t get the son, they went away with the mother, who could not even walk because of her age,’’ a source said.

The spokesman of the state police command, SP Muhammad Shehu could not be reached for comment at the time of filing this report.
