Pandemonium as gunmen abduct 14 persons in Kaduna State


Bandits in the early hours of Saturday abducted 14 persons at Station community, near Idon town in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna State.

The situation has sent panic in the community.

An official in the Kajuru Local Government Council, Bala Jonathan, lamented that the community 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.

He gave the names of the abductees as 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,”Jonathan said.

According to him, some of the earlier kidnapped victims are still with the bandits because their loved ones and the communities have not been able to raise the ransom.
