Unknown gunmen have abducted a policewoman, her daughter and four others at Janruwa Community near Patrick Yakowa way, Kaduna State.
The Herald gathered that the incident occurred around 10 pm on Saturday.
Witnesses said the gunmen attacked four homes in the community and removed the burglar-proof windows before ordering the victims to step out or get shot.
A resident, Baba Mathew, “They stormed our community around past 10 pm and raided 4 houses, kidnapped six people, including a woman, two young female teenagers, two young men, and a grown-up man.”
He added, “The victims had no option than to follow the attackers gently because they were at risk of being shot in their rooms.
“The only grown-up woman among those kidnapped was said to be a policewoman.”
Mathew said the policewoman ran out after noticing that the gunmen were trying to break the window.
He noted that she was unlucky to have run into the waiting arms of the assailants.
“She heard when they were attempting to break into her house, so she ran out, not knowing that they were many outside. So, those waiting outside her house just picked her. Her daughter, putting on only a small wrapper around her chest, who also followed her mother was equally taken.
“The kidnappers did not stop there, they also went inside her house to ransack the house, but her other children, a boy, and another girl had run into hiding,” Matthew said.
The Kaduna State Police Command has yet to confirm the incident.
