The wife of the victim narrated that the kidnappers, armed to the teeth, forcefully removed her husband from their residence after knocking down a perimeter fence to gain access to their compound.

As of the time of filing this report, the victim’s wife said the abductors were yet to establish contact with the family.

Confirming the incident, the Chairman of KRDA, Mai Baba Bego, disclosed that the latest incident has brought to five, the number of kidnapping cases that have occurred in the area in the last couple of months.
