A lady identified as Benifica Haruna was in the early hours of Tuesday abducted by gunmen in Fadan Ikulu Chiefdom, Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
A source told DAILY POST that the kidnappers invaded the area and started shooting sporadically to scare people away.
The mother of the victim, Sarauniyan Ikulu, who confirmed the abduction, told DAILY POST that her daughter was in her room when they heard gunshots.
According to the mother, “My daughter called me that she was going to hide somewhere in the house, unknown to us, we were their target. They (kidnappers) succeeded in taking my daughter away.”
She added that the kidnappers came on vehicles and motorcycles and freely operated for almost two hours without the intervention of security personnel.
She appealed to the security agencies to ensure that her daughter was rescued.
She, however, said that she had not received any information from the kidnappers.
DSP Muhammed Jalige, the Kaduna Police Public Relations Officer, could not respond to calls as of the time of filing this report.
