Terrorists have abducted Professor Ango Abdullahi’s daughter-in-law and her four children, in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Ango Abdullahi, a Convener of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), confirmed the abduction of the victims to journalists in Zaria, on Wednesday, saying his daughter-in-law; Ramatu Samaila and her four children were abducted by the bandits, on Tuesday night.
He said the daughter is the wife of his son, while her father is the village head of Yakawada.
It was gathered that the bandits invaded Yakawada village in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Tuesday night, went straight to the resident of Alhaji Rilwanu Saidu, the village head and took the victims to their forest.
The bandits also kidnapped some residents of the community including one Abubakar Mijinyawa and his two wives, Aisha and Hajara.
The two wives who are both nursing mothers were reportedly taken away along with their babies while a local patrol guard, Aminu Lawal, was killed by the attackers during the attack.
Three people who sustained injuries during the attack were rushed to Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital Zaria for treatment.
It could be recalled that not quite long, Abdullahi’s son, Sadiq Ango Abdullahi, who was a victim of Abuja-Kaduna bandits’ attack and was in kidnappers’ den for five months, regained freedom through the help of a negotiator, Tukur Mamu very recently.
The Police authorities have not yet commented on the incident.
