Bandit terrorists have kidnapped the daughter-in-law of the Chairman, Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Ango Abdullahi.
HausaToday reports that this development comes a month after one of the children of the NEF leader was kidnapped and later released from captivity.
It was learned that the terrorists invaded Yakawada village in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna on Tuesday night and kidnapped many of the villagers.
A source told Daily Trust that the terrorists were said to have stormed the residence of the village head, Alhaji Rilwanu Saidu and kidnapped his wife and four children.
The source added that the gunmen also kidnapped some victims at the residence of the monarch’s neighbour and killed one patrol guard, Aminu Lawal during the attack.
He added that three people, who sustained injuries in the attack, are receiving treatment at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria.
He said: “They also went to the residence of the neighbour to the village head and kidnapped the household, Abubakar Mijinyawa along with his two wives, namely Aisha and Hajara. And the two wives were both nursing mothers who were abducted with their little babies.”
Speaking with Daily Trust on Wednesday, Abdullahi confirmed the kidnap incident, saying that the village head is his son-in-law.
“My daughter-in-law, Ramatu Samaila, was among the abductees including her four children. She is the wife of my son-in-law who is the village head of Yakawada,” he said.
