On Friday, bandits have reportedly killed a pastor’s son in Karimbu-Kahugu community of Kaduna State’s Lere Local Government Area and abducted four other family members, including the pastor’s wife.
According to the vice chairman of the Kahugu National Development Organization in Lere Local Government Area, Peter Mukaddas, the bandits broke into the neighborhood early on Friday morning, attacked the pastor’s home right away, and then left.
He claimed that the bandits kidnapped the pastor’s wife and three other people from the residence after shooting the pastor’s son when he opposed them.
Mukaddas called on the state government to intervene and rescue the abducted victims unhurt. “We are fervently praying to God to touch their hearts so that they can see the wisdom to release them,” he said.
There was yet no communication between the bandits and family of the victims at the time of filling this report.
Meanwhile, the Kaduna State Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSC Mohammed Jalige did not pick up his calls, just as he did not respond to text messages sent to him.
