Kaduna: Gunmen kidnap over 30 farmers

Gunmen have reportedly abducted over 30 farmers in the Chikuri community of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

A source identified as Dogara Peter, who confirmed that his mother and his sister were among the victims, said the sad incident happened in the early hours of Saturday.

The source said the victims were abducted while working on Maikudi’s Farms. According to him, this was the third time people were kidnapped in his family, noting that it has destabilised their family economically.

Peter said; “Our community has been thrown into confusion as we have yet to establish any contact with the abductors.

“We want the security agencies and the government to swing into action and ensure our people return safely.

“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”.

Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, could not be reached to verify the claims as at press time.
