Kaduna bandits up their crime, kidnap corpse, 15 others

Bandits in Kaduna have taken their criminality to a higher level by kidnapping a corpse and about 15 other persons.

The tragedy which occurred along the notorious Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road on Wednesday led to the killing of one person.

The victims were said to be on their way to the burial of one Malam Yahuza mai Hula when they ran into the bandits.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Kaduna State, ASP Muhammad Jalige, told journalists that the Command was yet to be briefed on the incident by the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of the area where the attack took place.

According to a source, “The bandits, who rode on bikes, had earlier besieged Unguwan Yaku. It was there that a woman and her children were stopped, while conveying the remains of their breadwinner from Zaria for burial.

“The bandits shot the driver and he died. The vehicle lost control and fell into an eroded pit and while the confusion ensued, an oncoming vehicle drew the attention of the bandits, which enabled the victims dashed into the bush and escape.

“Sadly, another son of the woman, who later came to look for his mother, met the bandits and was kidnapped”, the source added.
