Terrorists raid Kaduna community, kidnap 30 farmers – moneyamebo

Date:

There are indications that terrorists have kidnapped over 30 farmers  in Chikuri community of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

A resident, Dogara Peter, who confirmed the sad incident to Sunday PUNCH on Saturday, said his mother and sister were among the victims.

According to him, the victims were abducted while working in Maikudi’s farms.

“Our community has been thrown into confusion as we have yet to establish any contact with the abductors. We want the security and the government to swing into action and ensure our people return safely.

Peter lamented that the latest incident was the third time people were kidnapped in his family, noting that it had crippled the family economically.

“We have nowhere to raise money for any ransom. The whole community is traumatised by this sad situation. Our last hope lies in the security agencies and the government,” Peter added.

The Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, Mansir Hassan, did not respond to several calls put across to him.

He also did not reply a text message sent to him by our correspondent at the time of filling this report.
