A woman has been kidnapped from her hospital bed by bandits in Anguwar Malamai village in Kakeyi, Kaduna State’s Zaria Local Government Area.
Anguwar Malamai is the closest town to the Zaria Dam, which is a popular tourist destination. The Nigerian Television Authority, NTA Zaria, is less than a mile away.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, armed gunmen stormed into the hamlet of Alhaji Shuaibu Dallatu and kidnapped his wife.
Alhaji Shuaibu Dallatu was kidnapped by the bandits because they asked some young guys who sleep in the shop outside the house for his whereabouts upon their arrival,” a villager stated.
The talk was overheard by Alhaji Dallatu, who was awake and caring for his sick wife at the time.
When the robbers were unable to locate the husband, they kidnapped the wife, even though she was in an extremely ill state.
“As they fled, they threw her into a waiting car and began shooting into the air.
Mohammed Jalinge, Kaduna’s police spokesman, could not be contacted at the time of this report.
