The Chief Imam of Nomadic Central Mosque at Rugan Ardo, Isyaka Adamu and a son of a Fulani chief have been killed by terrorists in Kaduna.
The terrorists also abducted 14 others in the Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
This was confirmed by a resident of the community identified as Shehu Ibrahim, who said that the terrorists raided Janjala community and abducted eight people before proceeding to Rugan Ardo, a few kilometres away and abducting six people after killing one of the sons of the Ardo, Alhaji Husaini Ardo.
He added that eight among 11 people that were abducted in December, 2022, in Janjala were still in captivity as three of them were freed last week.
Speaking with Daily Trust, he said, “Up till this moment no security agent has visited the village despite that the police were alerted when the attack was going on.”
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that some terrorists rejected a N5.3million ransom which was paid to them with the old naira notes, saying the deadline for their usage was fast approaching.
It was gathered that the leader of the bandits, who raided Azara, Janjala and Kadara communities in Kaduna State on December 12, 2022, and kidnapped 37 people, asked the relatives of the victims to return the old naira notes when they brought them for ransom payment.
Instead, he ordered for foodstuff, drugs and wine before freeing two nursing mothers and three men among the abducted 11 people from Azara community in Kachia LGA.
