The incident happened at Sutti Village under Tangaza Local Government Area of the state.

Residents said the heavily-armed bandits shot sporadically into the air, scaring residents.

The nursing mother was identified as wife of Magajin Garin Sulli, a traditional chief in the town. 

It was gathered that the bandits also kidnapped a yet-to-be ascertained number of traders along Balle-Tangaza Road in the state.
