Thirteen persons kidnapped along Kaduna-Abuja highway

At least, thirteen persons have been reportedly kidnapped in two villages along Abuja-Kaduna highway between Saturday and Monday by gunmen.

 According to a source, seven persons were abducted on Saturday at Begiwa and six others on Monday at Dutse village, all in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

 The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said heavily armed men invaded the two communities along the highway, shot and took away their victims to unknown destinations.

 As of the time of filing this report, the source said the victims were still with their abductors and no ransom had been demanded for their release.
 It was gathered that residents of the two communities have been living in fear since the incident took place.

 They called on the state government to urgently come to their aid by providing adequate security along the highway.

 Meanwhile, the Kaduna State Police Command was yet to confirm the incidents as there was no response to a call put to the command’s spokesman, DSP Yakubu Sabo. Also, he did not reply the text messages sent to his phone. (Punch)
