Kaduna: Two brothers are abducted by bandits in the Zaria community

Suspected bandits attacked and abducted a health worker and his brother on Friday night at Wusasa area of Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The bandits stormed the area around 9pm and shot sporadically to disperse the crowd before picking their victims, Yushau Peter of St. Luke’s Hospital Wusasa and his brother, Joshua Peter.

The village head of Wusasa, Engineer Isiyaku Ibrahim, confirmed the incident.

He lamented, “The kidnappers have so often made our area their target of attacks, abducting many of our people.”

He added that Wusasa settlement, which is outside the ancient city of Zazzau, has witnessed a series of attacks in recent times, saying that not long ago, an army officer and a vigilante member were killed.

According to him, it is the same area where a university professor and Wazirin Wusasa were killed and his son abducted, spending almost a month in captivity.

The abducted victims, Yushau and Joshua, are indigenes of Ikara Local Government Area in the state who recently ran for their lives after bandits attacked their residents and abducted their aged father, Mr Peter.

DSP Mohammed Jalige, the state police public relations officer, could not be reached to confirm the incident after calls put to his mobile phone.
