The children were abducted on Sunday in a farm between Kamfanin Mailafiya and Kurmin Doka villages.

Speaking to reporters, a resident who said his son was kidnapped estimated the total number of abducted children to be 30.

He said at least two children escaped from the armed bandits. The gunmen let one of the children go because the child was ill, according to the resident.

“Only four of the children are boys. The rest are girls aged below 14 (years),” the resident said.

One of the leaders from the villages attacked by the bandits disclosed the kidnappers had made contact and demanded N30 million, about $68,435.
