Bandits kidnap three nursing mothers in Kaduna

Armed bandits have kidnapped three nursing mothers in Karaukarau village, Giwa Local government area of Kaduna State.

A source from the village, Malam Sani Bakali told our Correspondent that, the heavily armed bandits had earlier picked 13 women, were challenged and repelled by the villagers.

Bakali explained that, the hoodlums stormed the village on Tuesday afternoon during a wedding ceremony, to kidnap the victims.


According to him, ‘You know the curfew imposed as a result of the coronavirus had not been easy for the bandits as they now have short supplies of food. The hoodlums now attack wedding venues and gatherings.

“So, on Tuesday, there was a wedding in our village and the hoodlums stormed the venue and took 13 women.”


He disclosed that, when the villagers heard of it, they mobilised and confronted the bandits, “as a result of that, 10 women were rescued, while three nursing mothers were abducted.

As at the time of filing this report, the three women are still under captivity.

According to Bakali, they have reported the attack to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Giwa local government.

However, when contacted, the Kaduna Police Command’s PPRO, ASP Mohammed Jalige said, he was yet to be briefed about the incident.
