Four persons reportedly abducted by Terrorist in a fresh Kaduna attack.

According to a report it was learnt that, no fewer than four persons have been abducted by terrorists in Rigachikun community of Igabi Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State, northwest Nigeria region.

Oneworld news channel reports that among the seized residents was a security operative.

One person was injured and was rushed to the hospital for treatment, although it is understood that he is back home.

Despite the fact that banditry is not a new phenomenon in Kaduna State, it was previously restricted to robbery and cattle rustling in rural communities in Birnin-Gwari, Chikun, Giwa and Igabi local government areas. Kaduna then was only witnessing a spillover of the crime in the Kamuku, Kuyanbana and Falgore, a large forest spanning Niger, Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Zamfara and Sokoto states.

On the Kaduna side of the forest, which envelopes Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area, the bandits were as far back as 15 years ago known for their trademark highway robbery and cattle rustling. They used to block the Buruku, Birnin-Gwari axis of the Kaduna-Lagos Road, rob travellers of their hard-earned possessions but rarely killed.

The terrorists became more dreaded when they began mass rustling of cattle around 2001.
