Bandits who kidnapped some residents of Anguwan Bulus in Chikun Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State two weeks ago have killed three of their abductees.
POLITICS NIGERIA gathered that the terrorists also threatened to kill more unless the ransom they demanded is paid. They are believed to have at least seven more persons with them.
Spokesperson of the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the killing on Tuesday.
“I received phone calls from some people this morning that 3 bodies were found at Dutse village somewhere in the bush. The corpses were evacuated to Saint Gerald Hospital.
“We are trying to talk to the Area Commander to ensure the safe return of those who are still in captivity,” Jalige said.
Kidnapping for ransom is a reoccurring decimal in Kaduna State. Bandits abduct people from their homes, farms, and even on the roads. This has made the residents live in perpetual fear and helplessness.
