An indigene of the town, Malam Abubakar Sani told our reporter that, the bandits arrived Gayari town Thursday night and went to the district head's house where they kidnapped him and his son.
According to him, the Ak-47 wielding bandits fired gunshots into the air to scare away neighbours who came out to rescue the traditional ruler.
