Catholic priest and eight others were abducted in Kaduna in fresh attacks
A Catholic priest, Fr. Kunat, and eight others were kidnapped in separate attacks in Idon, Kajuru Local Government Area, and Oil Village, a Kaduna metropolis suburb near the Kaduna refinery.
Although details about Fr. Kunat’s abduction were sketchy at press time, it was learned that bandits broke into his Idon residence at midnight on Monday and abducted him.
Also, the attack on Oil Village is said to have happened around 7:45 p.m. on Monday night.
A resident of the area, who confirmed the incident in a telephone chat, said the bandits, numbering about 15, invaded the community.
He said the bandits sneaked into the community and surrounded the residence of a widow, who had gone to buy something within the neighborhood, but noticed some strange movements as she returned home.
The criminals were said to have swooped in on her and her children as she entered the house.
