Garba Zolo, a medical professional, was one of the victims taken by bandits in Unguwar Lalle village, Sabon Birni Local Government Area, Sokoto State.
The gunmen reportedly attacked the village around 2 p.m. on Thursday, killing two soldiers, wounding several others, and kidnapping a large number of people.
Musa Gobir, a source who spoke to Premium Times, verified that the medical professional had been kidnapped.
He claimed the bandits invaded the village’s primary healthcare center and kidnapped Mr Zolo and two others.
Gobir, however, said the gunmen were yet to make contact with the family of Mr Zolo.
