Gunmen accused of being robbers kidnapped 77 people in Libere village, Kajuru Local Government Area, Kaduna district.
According to reports, the incident happened on Wednesday, April 21.
According to AIT, Aminu Na’Iri, the village head of neighbouring Kalla, who reported the incident, said eight members of a household, including the wife and twins, were abducted.
Libere village is located across the Kaduna River from Kasuwan Magani Kalla village, making it difficult for security operatives to respond quickly to any attack in the district.
The incident comes on the heels of a bandit assault on Greenfield University along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in the state’s Chikun Local Government Area, killing a staff member and kidnapping multiple students.
On Friday, three of the kidnapped students were discovered dead.
