Factional leader of Boko Haram

News Investigators/ Terrorists on Sunday night abducted 87 people in a fresh attack on the Kajuru-Station community in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

A member of the Kajuru-Station Youths, Harisu Dari, confirmed the incident to journalists on Monday.

According to Mr. Harisu, the terrorists stormed the village around 10 pm, and also broke into some shops and stole food items and other valuables.

The attack came barely two days after 15 women and a man were abducted in the Dogon-Noma community of the same local government.

Less than two weeks ago, terrorists stormed Karuga in the same Kaduna where it abducted 287 students and teachers.

Kajuru and Chikun LGs had in the past two weeks become the hotbed of kidnapping, causing tension in the state.

Mr. Harisu explained that no contact has been established yet with the 87 locals abducted on Sunday night.

“As of the time I visited the community this morning, security operatives have not been drafted to help restore the confidence of the villagers.

“The villagers are traumatized by the sad development. The government needs to re-strategise in tackling the terrorists,” he said.
