20 Sep Terrorists abdust 45 people in Kaduna Church.
Armed men invaded the Cherubim and Seraphim Church during a vigil programme at the Bayan Kasuwa quarters in Kajuru Local Government Area, abducting at least 45 people, the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) told reporters on Monday.
The SOKAPO’s President, Awemi Maisamari, in a statement, said the terrorists kidnapped over 45 worshippers and other residents of the area. Mr Maisamari said the abductors have contacted some families of the abducted persons.
Kidnapping for ransom is frequent in Kajuru in Southern Kaduna and many other local government areas in the state. The victims include clerics, businesspersons, and other residents.
The kidnapping for ransom and killing by the non-state actors have continued in Kaduna and other states despite billion of naira budgeted for the security agencies. Kaduna, one of the worst hit states, has the highest number of security formations in the state.
