Gunmen Raid Late Emir’s Residence, Kidnap 5 People In Kaduna Community



Bandits have reportedly raided the private residence of the late Emir of Jere, Dr. Sa’ad Usman in the Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State and abducted some persons.

According to reports, the attack took place on Sunday, at 11:00 pm as residents were set to go to bed, while a resident in the area identified as Alhaji Musa Arungo, stated that a man, Hussaini, was abducted while his wife and four-month-old baby escaped when the attackers were in a neighboring house.

According to him, the bandits entered a nearby community, Anguwar Salanke, and abducted another resident, identified as Baba Na’ibi.

“After the abduction of the resident, they also injured two occupants of the house – Ahmad and Musa. The two injured persons were taken to the hospital,” he said.

Confirming the abduction, the Jere emirate council’s secretary, Malam Aliyu Zubair, said six people were abducted in the area based on the information at his disposal.

He said the bandits invaded the late emir’s private residence around 10:12 pm on Sunday and abducted one person before proceeding to a neighbour’s house, where they whisked away five people.

He said the bandits escaped before the arrival of the police, adding that the presence of vigilantes stopped them from attacking several others in the village

All efforts to get the Kaduna Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Jalige, to pass comments on the incident proved abortive, as he did not pick up his calls as of the time of filing this report.
