At least sixty-one people have been kidnapped by suspected terrorists after an attack on the Buda community in Kajuru Local Government Area, Kaduna State.

Although state and police authorities have not yet provided official confirmation, a local resident told Punch on Tuesday that the terrorists stormed the village on Monday night at approximately 11:45 pm, taking 61 people hostage.

A resident named Dauda Kajuru explained how the terrorists stormed the hamlet in large numbers and started shooting randomly.

In his words: “What happened yesterday was terrifying. The bandits came intending to abduct scores of people that’ll outnumber that of school pupils in Kuriga Village of Chikun Local Government Area, but the swift response of soldiers who werw not more than 2k. away from Kajuru curtailed the number.


“My siblings were part of those abducted yesterday and based on the information available as of this morning, the bandits with their victims are yet to get to their destination.”

He lamented that since the removal of an Army Commander popular known as (Tega), banditry activities have resumed in full force around the Kajuru Local Government Villages.

” I’ll tell you in confidence that when Commander Tega was around, their activities stopped, and one could go for occasions without any fear of being kidnapped because he knows their terrain and the mode of their operations.

“It is unfortunate Commander Tega was removed from Kajuru Local Government when we’re experiencing the return of peace in our villages,” he added.

Lawal Abdullahi, a different resident who managed to flee the scene but whose wife was one of the victims, also attested to the kidnapping of 61 individuals.

He claimed that among the victims were men, women, and kids, among them a two-week-old nursing mother.
