Unknown gunmen have abducted a 14-year-old girl in Kankia Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Father of the victim, Alhaji Salisu Mai-Tiles, said that the gunmen invaded his residence at Sabuwar-Abuja quarters in Kankia at about 1:30 a.m on Thursday.
He said that three well-armed persons broke into his residence and demanded money, while the remaining gang members stayed outside.
“They asked me to give them money, which I did; whatever they asked we never objected to their demand to save our lives, but unfortunately, they went with my 14-year-old daughter,” he said.
The gang members also blocked Katsina-Kano road in Kankia and robbed motorists at gunpoint.
In a related development, suspected armed robbers have shot dead a policeman attached to WAPA Shopping Mall in Katsina on Thursday night and carted away an undisclosed amount of money.
