No fewer than 14 persons have been reportedly abducted by bandits at Station community, near Idon town in Kajuru Local Government, Kaduna State.

The incident happened in the early hours of today, June 4, 2022, according to The Nation.

An official in the Kajuru Local Government Council, Bala Jonathan, gave the names of the abductees as Abdullahi, Yakubu Isah, Samson Julius, Angelina Julius, Pasema Daniel, and Junior.

Others are Bobo Julius, Saratu Mohammed, Asenath Sunday, Confidence Jerry, Barnaki Sunday, Moses Kenneth, Danladi Goma and Ummi Jibrin.

”These are the names of abducted persons in Iri Station which we have discovered for now. The sad event happened in the early hours of today, June 4, 2022,” Jonathan said.

According to him, some of the earlier kidnapped victims are still with the bandits because their loved ones and the communities have not been able to raise the ransom.
