Bandits kidnap JAMB candidates, baby 

Three candidates after writing the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have been kidnapped in Kaduna by bandits.

According to TheNation, they were abducted on Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road on Saturday.

The driver of a former House of Representatives member, Adamu Shekarau, was also kidnapped.

Police in the state confirmed the incident on Monday, adding that a one-and-half-year-old was among the abductees.

Police spokesman Muhammad Jalige said police were on the trail of the bandits.

He gave the names of the kidnapped UTME candidates as Yusuf Sani, Ummi Sani, and Umairah Mustapha.

Jalige said, “Yes, there was an attack on Saturday on Birnin-Gwari Road. The driver of the vehicle was shot to death and four other people were kidnapped. The incident happened around a village called Ungwan Yako.

“Three of the kidnapped victims are candidates who came to Kaduna to write UTME exam. They were on their way back when the incident happened. “The police around the area engaged the criminals and recovered their motorcycle. We are still on the trail of the criminals.

“Also, the Commissioner has directed for more deployments on the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road and one Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) has been deployed to that area. The APC is just about to leave the police headquarters now to the place.”
