Suspected kidnappers on Tuesday night attacked Danhono II community in New Millennium City, Chikun local government area of Kaduna state, kidnapping a new couple, Imam, and five other persons.
The abducted new couple just got married last Saturday. The bandits, who stormed the community around 8:50pm numbering about 10, with AK47 rifles and other dangerous weapons, were said to be clad in black uniform with one of them masked, as they went away with the Imam of the Danhono II Central Mosque, his wife and three children, including a 10 month-old baby.
A community member, Mohammed, who escaped the abduction by the whiskers, revealed that the bandits started by picking the Imam and his family who they met outside the community’s Jumu’ah Mosque before proceeding to a-four flats building where they picked the new couple.
In September, the Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani, flagged off the training of 7,000 recruits for the Kaduna Vigilance Service to complement the efforts of other security agencies to tackle kidnapping, armed robbery, and other related crimes in the state.
According to report, the governor stated that the recruitment became necessary because of the shortfall of regular security agencies in the battle to tackle security challenges across the state.
