At least, 17 women and an unknown number of children were reportedly kidnapped in Sabuwa Local Government Area of Katsina State on Thursday.

A source told Daily Trust that the victims were on their way to a wedding ceremony in Funtua Local Government Area of the state when they were intercepted by gunmen who whisked them to an unknown location.

“The incident happened when the women were on their way from Unguwar Rimi Village to Garin Maigora town to attend a wedding ceremony,” the source said, adding that almost all the women were carrying babies at the time they were abducted.

The source said one of the women was released together with her baby due to the health condition of the child.

On Wednesday, suspected bandits kidnapped eight persons – three married women and five men – at Dugun sambo village, Dandume Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Also, suspected bandits kidnapped four – two male adults and two married women – at Unguwar Tashuka village of Sayau ward, Sabuwa Local Government Area, Katsina state around 2:00 am.

Similarly, unidentified gunmen attacked Tashar Bawa and Sayau Dangado villages around 10:15 am on Tuesday where they carted away many boxer motorcycles and mobile phones.

They, however, tried to kidnap some people at Sayau Dangado village but took to their heels when military vehicles arrived.

When contacted for confirmation, the Police spokesperson in Katsina, SP Isah Gambo, promised to find out about the matter before making any comment.
