Nursing mother, two others abducted in Jalingo

A Nursing mother identified as Salamatu and two other persons have been abducted in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.

Daily Trust gathered that gunmen numbering about 10 stormed the area at midnight on Sunday and abducted the victims.

The gunmen were said to have picked up the woman after failing to find her husband who is suspected to be their target.

The gunmen, Daily Trust gathered, forced their way into the second house and abducted a businessman and his brother.

The abduction happened a few days after gunmen were prevented from abducting people around Specialists Hospital, Jalingo.

The area, which is located close to a mountain situated along Mallam Audu-Pantisawa road, is used by kidnappers as their den.

Residents interviewed expressed concern over refusal of the authorities to launch operations against kidnappers.

Contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, DSP Usman Abdullahi, said he was in a meeting and he would call back but he had not done so at the time of filing this report.
