|Armed Robbers kill father and son in Kaduna state|
Armed Robbers storm Baka village in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing a father and son.
The robbers, who stormed the town early Saturday morning, were on their way to kidnap a farmer and his son, according to Security Commissioner Samuel Aruwan.
A statement posted by the commissioner on Facebook said the men refused to allow the robbers to take them away, prompting them to shoot them immediately.
However, the Nigerian Army managed to kill some robbers during air strikes in Birnin Gwari and Giwa Local Government Areas after they were spotted with stolen cattle, according to Aruwan.
The problem of robberies in Kaduna State is rife, although the government and security agencies say they are working hard.
Last week robbers killed 23 people in attacks in three counties in one day.
