Six people including, two nursing mothers and their babies, were abducted after.
Gunmen have abducted six people, including two nursing mothers after they stormed a hotel in Damishi community, Chikun local government area of Kaduna yesterday night.
According to reports the gunmen, numbering more than 30, invaded the community with AK47 rifles.
A resident, identified simply as Abraham, said the gunmen had earlier stormed the residence of a priest who they did not find at home.
Then they moved to a hotel in the community, where residents usually take cover due to the insecurity in the area.
“They went to the hotel, the gunmen were many, about 30 of them or more. They always come in very large number,” Abraham said.
He said the men moved from room to room in the hotel, kidnapping a lot of people, especially children that fall between ages six and 10.
He said as they left, they realised the children were not walking fast enough for them.to escape, so they released them and abducted the six women, including two nursing mothers and their kids.
He said rarely does any week pass and a person doesnt get abducted.
“Some of us were living in Kaduna metropolis, we bought land and built our houses here. But with the current security situation, I have moved my family to our family house in Kaduna pending when I get a place to rent.
“The community has been under siege by bandits for a long time despite the proximity to Kaduna metropolis. Many of us don’t leave in our houses because of fear of the kidnappers.”
