Retired NBC Director, 15-Year-Old Daughter Abducted In Katsina
Last night, they raided Bakori Housing Units and abducted Alhaji Ahmed Abdulkadir, a retired National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) director, and his 15-year-old daughter, Laila.
Three other residents were abducted by the bandits who wielded AK 47 rifles.
The homes of the victims were raided around 9pm, according to sources.
Others abducted were Alhaji Bello Aminu Bakori, Shamsuddeen Aminu and one Habibu Rabe of Local Education Authority, Bakori.
Less than an hour after the abduction, vigilantes in the area pursued the assailants and intercepted them in Danja Local Government Area.
After a gun duel, three male victims were freed but Abdulkadir and his daughter are said to still be in captivity.
Bandits have been making life tough for many in a new wave of insecurity around the country.
From Abuja to Zamfara, Niger and many other places, gunmen have been breaking into homes, abducting their victims for millions.
