Terrorists have abducted a woman from a sick bed in Unguwar-Malamai village, in Kakeyi, Zaria local government area of Kaduna State.
Unguwar-Malamai, which is the nearest community to the famous Zaria Dam, is about one kilometre away from the Nigerian Television Authority, (NTA), Zaria.
The terrorists, who arrived at the village around midnight yesterday, proceeded straight to the resident of Alhaji Shu’aibu Dallatu and kidnapped his wife. One of the villagers interviewed said, “The bandits arrived purposely to kidnap the head of the household, Shu’aibu Dallatu; because on arrival they asked some young men who sleep in the shop outside the house about his whereabouts. Meanwhile, Dallatu, who was fully awake attending to his sick wife, overheard the conversation and quickly sneaked out”.
He further explained that when the terrorists could not find the husband, they decided to kidnap the wife despite her sick condition. “They bundled her into a waiting car and started shooting into the air as they made their exit.
The Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Jalige, was not reachable at the time of filing this report.
