Gunmen Abduct 8 at Tuberculosis and Leprosy Quarters, Kaduna, Nigeria

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers at the weekend attacked the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre in Zaria, Kaduna state, abducting no fewer than seven people including nursing mothers.

The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday when the bandits invaded the centre and started shooting sporadically.

Efforts are underway to rescue the victims, including three female nurses and five other staff, abducted from the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre near the city of Zaria of Kaduna State, said police spokesman Mohammed Jalige, confirming the incident.

Eye witnesses say the bandits stormed the premises in large numbers, firing at officers from a nearby police station and blocking a bridge to thwart police reinforcements.
