Gunmen Abduct Policewoman, Five Others In Kaduna



Again, Gunmen Kidnap Catholic Priest In Imo Community

A policewoman, her daughter and four others have been abducted by suspected kidnappers at Janruwa, Patrick Yakowa way area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the community in the late hours of Saturday and started breaking into houses.

An eyewitness, Mr Babalola Mathew, told The Nation: “It was a commando-like adventure. They (bandits) stormed our community around past 10 pm and raided four houses, kidnapped six people, including a woman, two young female teenagers, two young men and a grown-up man.

“They picked most of the victims through the windows after shattering the window glasses and removing the burglaries. They ordered everyone out.

“The victims had no option than to follow the attackers gently because they were at risk of being shot in their rooms.

“The only grown-up woman among those kidnapped was said to be a Policewoman.

“She heard when they were attempting to break into her house, so she ran out, not knowing that they (bandits) were many outside.

“So, those waiting outside her house just picked her. Her daughter, putting on only a small wrapper around her chest, who also followed her mother was equally taken.

“The kidnappers did not stop there, they also went inside her house to ransack the house, but her other children, a boy and another girl had ran into hiding.”
