According to the source who preferred anonymity, the heavily armed men stormed the respective villages along the Kaduna- Abuja highway, shot sporadically and thereafter whisked away the victims to an unknown destination.

He said, the victims are still in the abductors custody and no ransom has been placed for their release yet.
