Bandits Abduct Atleast 14 People In Kaduna



Bandits Abduct 14 In Kaduna

In the early hours of Saturday, some bandits invaded Iri Station, Idon Ward of Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State and abducted no fewer than 14 people.

Confirming the incident, Bala Jonathan, a Supervisory Councillor of Admin, Finance and Health of the Council, said the bandits struck in the wee hours on Saturday.

Jonathan gave the identity of those abducted by the hoodlums to include Abdullahi, Yakubu Isah, Samson Julius, Angelina Julius, Pasema Daniel, Junior,  Bobo Julius, Saratu Mohammed, Asenath Sunday, Confidence Jerry, Barnaki Sunday, Moses Kenneth, Danladi Goma and Ummi Jibrin.

“These are the names of abducted persons in Iri Station which we have discovered for now. The sad event happened in the early hours of today, June 4, 2022,” he said.

He added that some of the natives who were kidnapped earlier “are still being held by the criminal gangs because their loved ones and communities have not been able to raise the ransom demanded by their abductors.”

It was gathered that the community (Idon) is fast becoming haven for the hoodlums who at will abduct natives with reckless abandon, leaving the members of the communities with no option but to part with ransoms in order to save their beloved ones.
