Suspected bandits have killed one soldier and kidnapped two officials of a farm company in Anchau town, Kabau Local Council of Kaduna state. 

The bandits invaded the company around 1:30 pm on Wednesday and abducted a Zimbabwean national and a Nigerian.

A vigilante working in the community identified the Zimbabwean as one Mr. Charles Choko. “They (bandits) attacked and killed a soldier working in the farm company and also kidnapped one Mr. Charles Choko from Zimbabwe and one Yusuf Aliyu Bello from Kano state,” he said.

A villager, who pleaded anonymity, said that he saw a team of security agencies on Friday ‎going into the nearby bush in search of the victims.

When contacted to confirm the development, calls to the Chairman of the Local Council, Basher Suleiman Zuntu, was unanswered.
