BREAKING: Gunmen kidnap nursing mum, 22 others
Bandits operating in Birnin-Gwari axis of Kaduna State on Friday kidnapped 23 travellers including a nursing mother.
Five vehicles were raided by the marauders, according to a commercial driver, Mohamed Kebi, who escaped from the scene of the kidnapping.
Kebi said: “At least five vehicles were intercepted by kidnappers along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna road around 11.00am this morning.
“At least 23 people were kidnapped, including a nursing mother and one other kid. “The incident occurred at Kwanar-tsauni between Udawa and Labi.”
He said though security along the Funtua road has improved lately, “we want the government to also provide maximum security to other routes that are haven of kidnappers.”
