Bandits murder soldier kidnap stepmother in Kaduna



In a harrowing incident in Anguwan Rimi village, Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, a soldier identified as Yahaya Ayuba (Zabuyia) was reportedly killed, while his stepmother was abducted.

According to a family member, Mr. Kantiok Solomon, who confirmed the incident, the soldier had arrived from Lagos on Sunday evening. Tragically, gunmen wielding AK-47 rifles stormed the house around 11:00 pm while the soldier was in discussion with his family members at the palace.

“The incident happened last Sunday, at around 11:00 pm, when the bandits wielding AK-47 rifles invaded the house to abduct the stepmother, but the soldier resisted,” said Kantiok. “Meanwhile, the gunmen noticed his uniform hanging on the cushion and resorted to gunning him down without hesitation.”

Angelo Tagwai, another resident, also confirmed the incident, expressing shock and concern over the recurring violence in the community. “We’re calling on the security operatives to immediately swing into action to rescue the stepmother and ensure the perpetrators of this act are arrested and prosecuted,” he urged.

Despite attempts to reach out to the Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansir Hassan, for a statement, there was no response to calls or text messages.

The tragic event has left the community in mourning and heightened tension, with residents calling for swift action to bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure the safety of all residents.
