Suspected bandits on Tuesday night attacked Dan-Honu II community in New Millennium City, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State kidnapping eight persons.
Among those abducted were a new couple who got married last Saturday, Imam of the community Mosque, his wife and three children, including a 10 months old baby.
The bandits who stormed the community around 8:50pm numbering about 10, with AK47 rifles and other dangerous weapons, were said to be clad in black, with one of them masked.
A community member, Mohammed, who escaped the abduction by the whiskers, told our correspondent that the bandits started by picking the Imam and his family who they met outside the community’s Juma’at Mosque before proceeding to a-four flats compound where they picked the new couple.
“They started banging his door and shouting ‘Dan Iska ba za ka fito ba?’, meaning ‘idiot, will you not come out? That was when I realised that they were kidnappers. So, when they could not force the door open, they broke his window and the burglary proof.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Kaduna Command, ASP Mansur Hassan asked our correspondent to call back later, as the police was still trying to establish the true account of the incident.
