The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has wondered why the Kaduna State Government has been silent on the abduction of 65 Adara villagers in the Kajuru Local Government Area of the state, alleging that the villagers were abducted on Tuesday night.
According to the union the Village Head of Libere, Mr Bala Yero, his wives, and 16 others were among those abducted.
The spokesman for SOKAPU, Luka Binniyat, who disclosed this in a statement on Friday, said the bandits invaded the village at about 11 pm on Tuesday and shot indiscriminately, kidnapping victims.
He however, said that 10 of the victims were able to escape the following day.
The statement read: “For reasons not clear to SOKAPU, Kaduna State government did not include in its daily security update the abduction of 65 Adara villagers from Libere Gari Village, Kallah ward, Kajuru Local Government Area in the southern part of Kaduna State on Tuesday night by persons identified by the villagers as armed Fulani militia.
“The gunmen, who arrived at the village around 11 pm, went about shooting in the air to scare villagers as they captured their victims from compound to compound. They spent two hours unchallenged. The kidnappers have yet to make contact with family members as of Friday.”
