Robbers Attack Kaduna Residents on the Eve of election

Gunmen stormed Manchok, Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Friday, in an alleged robbery attack that sent residents and electoral officials running in all directions for safety according to a report by NAN.

The report says armed robbers stormed the kiosk of a money transfer agent around 9:30 pm., shooting sporadically in the air.

As the sound of the gunshots rattled the air, pandemonium set in with residents running in all directions for safety.

Electoral officials assigned to Manchok Registration Area, who were sorting electoral materials for various Polling Units close to the scene for Saturday’s election, also ran for safety, leaving the electoral materials behind.

The officials, however, returned after the robbers had finished their operation along with security personnel and party agents and continued sorting the materials.

An eye witness, Mukaila Danjuma, said: “Three men suddenly appeared from nowhere, two of them with guns and started shooting in the air.

“One of them came straight to the kiosk and snatched the bag containing all the money generated from various transactions in the day.”

The owner of the kiosk, Balarabe Danjuma, told NAN that the bag contained about N3.5 million.

“They did not take anything apart from the bag and left immediately, still shooting in the air to scare people off.
