He identified the man killed to be the security guard at the residence of the Chairman, Alhaji Kabir Matazu.
Isah said that the bandits, after killing the security guard, abducted the two children.
He said that trackers were already on the trail of the bandits to arrest them and rescue the kidnapped children.
