Suspected bandits have kidnapped eight persons in Dan-Honu II community in New Millennium City, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the bandits attacked the community on Tuesday night, November 28, 2023.
Among those abducted were a new couple who got married last Saturday, the Imam of the community Mosque, his wife and three children, including a 10-month-old baby.
The bandits who stormed the community around 8:50pm numbering about 10, with AK47 rifles and other dangerous weapons, were said to be clad in black, with one of them masked.
A community member, Mohammed, who escaped the abduction by the whiskers, told Daily Trust that the bandits started by picking the Imam and his family whom they met outside the community’s Juma’at Mosque before proceeding to a flats compound where they picked the new couple.
“They started banging on his door and shouting ‘Dan Iska ba za ka fito ba?’, meaning ‘idiot, will you not come out? That was when I realised that they were kidnappers. So, when they could not force the door open, they broke his window and the burglary proof,” he said.
