Vigilantes in the area mobilised and went after them less than an hour after they were kidnapped.
The armed men were reportedly apprehended by local guards in Danja Local Government Area, and three victims were said to have regained their freedom after an exchange of gunfire.
Abdulkadir and his daughter, on the other hand, are said to still be held captive.
In a new wave of insecurity sweeping the country, bandits have made life difficult for many.
Gunmen have broken into homes across Nigeria, from Abuja to Zamfara, Niger, and elsewhere, abducting their victims for millions of dollars.
