No fewer than six people, including a police officer’s wife were kidnapped, when bandits invaded Wusasa community in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Christmas night.

A source told Daily Trust that the bandits, who struck around 10:30pm went from house to house without being challenged.

The source aside the policeman’s wife, his daughters as well as four others were kidnapped.

He said personnel of Kaduna State Vigilance Service (KadVS) later responded to a distress call put to them but the bandits were already on their way out with the victims.

“As they (KadVS) arrived and engaged the bandits in a gun duel, they (bandits) ran away with the victims, it was later realised that the victims were from three different houses in the Wusasa area,’’ he said.

ASP Mohammed Jalige, Police Public Relations Officer in Kaduna, could not be reached for reaction as he neither responded to calls nor replied the messages sent by our correspondent.

On December 3, 2021, bandits stormed some communities in Dutsen Abba Ward, Zaria Local Government and kidnapped 13 persons, killing one.

Similarly, on December 14, bandits blocked Zaria Kaduna expressway, killed a member, Kaduna state House of Assembly and kidnapped dozens of travelers.
