No fewer than 36 people have been reportedly kidnapped during Sunday’s attack by bandits on four communities in the Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
This was disclosed by the residents of the communities during a meeting with security agencies on Monday.
“When they came, they met some people in the church; they decided to go into the church, pack some of them, gathered them in a particular place, and went to another village,” an eyewitness and a resident of Kufana village, Bashir Bawo, explained.
He said the bandits came in bikes and had to steal more motorcycles from the villagers in order to take more people away. He said they killed some of the villagers who tried to repel the attack and injured others.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, Monday, led security chiefs to Kufana District to get first-hand information on the attack.
He was accompanied by the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Yekini Ayoku, other heads of security agencies in the state, community leaders, and the chairman of Kajuru Local Government Area.
