Blueprint gathered that a graduate of the Federal College of Education, Kontagora, was among those killed.
The name of the slain graduate at Angwar Mahogi was given as Dauda Daniel while one of those killed at Rafingora was named as Mohammed Nura.
Our source gave the names of those kidnapped at Rafingora as Asmau Kafaya, Namaza Audu, Nahima Musa, Yahuza Magaji and Safiyanu Rafingora.
The bandits were said to have arrived in the area, riding on over 30 motorcycles and shot sporadically to scare the villagers and that it was in the process of running for their lives that the deceased were hit by bullets.
It was also learnt that several cattle were rustled from the communities during the raids which lasted for close to three hours without any resistance.
A top government official who preferred anonymity confirmed the story, but the police were yet to issue any statement on this latest development that occurred in the same local government area where 42 persons including 27 students were abducted 10 days ago and are still in captivity.
