Some bandits have invaded Ungwan Zallah Udawa in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna where one person was killed and over 20 residents including women and children kidnapped on Saturday night.
The state Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement titled, ‘bandits kill two in Igabi and Chikun LGAs,’ confirmed the killing of one Moses Jaja by bandits at Ungwan Zallah Udawa in Chikun LGA
However, the Commissioner did not mention the kidnap incident which resulted in the bandits taking away over 20 members of the community to an unknown destination.
Aruwan, according to security report made available to the state government, had said bandits attacked Ungwan Zallah and killed one Moses Jaja.
“In the second incident, bandits attacked Ungwan Zallah in Udawa, Chikun LGA, and one Moses Jaja was shot dead,” the Commissioner had said in the statement
Our correspondent gathered that the hoodlums, in large numbers and carrying heavy sophisticated arms, invaded the community located along the Kaduna – Brinin Gwari Road, shooting indiscriminately before taking away their victims.
A source said the bandits armed to the teeth invaded the community on Saturday night(at around 12.30am).
According to the source, married women, adults as well as young ladies, are among those kidnapped by the bandits
The bandits, he added, had yet to reach out to the families of the kidnapped victims as of the time of filing this report.
“Last night(Saturday) heavily armed terrorists invaded Unguwan Zallah in Udawa, Kunai ward of Chikun LGA killing one Moses Jaja and kidnapping over 20 people,” the source who craved anonymity said, adding that the entire community is in confusion.
