The staff quarters of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) at the Kaduna International Airport, was again attacked by bandits on Sunday morning in apparent move to abduct residents of the quarters.
The attack, coming less than two weeks after gunmen invaded the FAAN quarters and abducting 13 people, was however foiled with the intervention of the military which engaged the bandits in a gun duel.
According to reports, the bandits gained access into the quarters through porous sections of the airport airside leading to runway 23 / 05. It was also revealed that on gaining access to the quarters, the bandits headed straight to their target flashing touch lights to locate their way to his apartment.
However, a distress call prompted the intervention of the military, which engaged the bandits in a gun duel forcing them to escape.
