Some terrorists have reportedly attacked Karimbu-Kahugu Community in the Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The attack, which happened on Friday morning, claimed the life of the Baptist resident pastor’s son. They also whisked away his wife and three others.
The Vice Chairman, Kahugu National Development Associations, Peter Mukaddas, confirmed the incident to The PUNCH.
He disclosed that the assailants invaded the village and went straight to the clergy’s residence.
It was gathered that the terrorists operated for over an hour unchallenged and in the process, they shoot sporadically at the ceiling were the pastor’s son was hiding.
Mukaddas said they have since reported the matter to the police but residents in the area are thrown into confusion as contact was yet to be established with the kidnappers.
“We’re appealing to the government and security agencies to swing into action and ensure our loved ones are rescued,” he said.
The spokesman of the Kaduna Police Command, Mohammed Jalige, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
