Thirteen Zaria Local Government workers have been kidnapped by armed gunmen in Kaduna State. The victims were on a bus traveling between Giwa and Zaria around 5 p.m. on Monday, November 8, when the event happened.

Four males, Dalhatu Awai, Suleiman Lawal Zailani, Nura Abdullahi, and Umar Shehu, have been identified as victims.

They are Deborah Mugu, Halima Tabari, Fatima Abdullahi, Hafsat Zakari, Maryam Fatika and Amina Sulaiman. Deborah Mugu was one of eight women killed in the attack, the other five were killed in the attack and one was kidnapped.

More than half of those kidnapped by the CNG, Kaduna State Students Wing, are parents of students in higher education, according to the group’s statement.

As stated by the Kaduna State Coordinator, Jamilu Musa, students have threatened to shut down Zaria in seven days unless action is made to ensure the release of the detainees. Musa has signed the statement on behalf of the students.

“In the crucial area of ensuring the security of Nigerians’ lives and property, our federal and state governments have so far failed miserably. CNG made the statement.

A “great vacuum in the political will and competence of the government to fight these criminals” was cited as the reason for the “audacity with which these criminals carry out their crimes with ease.”

“The CNG Students Wing is shocked and appalled by the growing tendency of authorities ignoring kidnappings of innocent persons, notably students and their parents.

“The fact that many of our fellow students’ moms are among the abducted women in Zaria Local Government is extremely noteworthy.

“Despite our sympathies for the abducted staff members’ loved ones, we call on the appropriate authorities to take urgent action to ensure their safe return and call on the federal government to show more dedication to citizen safety.

“Let us announce unequivocally that the kids of Northern Nigeria will no longer sit idly by while their fellow students and parents are brutally murdered without repercussion.

“Last week’s kidnappings of parents and students, as well as the kidnappings of all those in captivity, have prompted a major protest in Zaria that will shut down the city and force authorities into action, according to a statement released by the group.
