Bandits have invaded Iri Station in Idon Ward of Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State and abducted 14 people.
A Supervisory Councillor of Admin, Finance and Health of the Council, Bala Jonathan confirmed this and said the incident happened in the early hours of Saturday.
He gave the identity of those abducted 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.
According to him, 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.”
