It was learnt that the gunmen raided the communities in Kaduna State on Sunday, and some persons including family members were kidnapped.

Senator Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th National Assembly made this known on Monday, on his verified Twitter handle. 

The former lawmaker mentioned the names of the kidnapped persons and called for prayers for their release.

He wrote: "Yesternight, bandits raided Jere, Kagarko LG Kaduna state near Abuja and kidnapped some people; Alh Yusuf & his family. Alh Kasuwa & his family. Dantala Direba & his family. Sule maishago & his family & unspecified number of Almajirai. We pray for their release."

Last Monday, a Kaduna-bound train was attacked by terrorists who kidnapped a yet-to-be-ascertained number of persons. Eight persons were confirmed killed during the attack while 26 were injured. 

A couple of days before the train attack, some terrorists stormed Kaduna airport and prevented an aircraft from taking off. One person was killed during the attack. 

Many communities in Kaduna have been living at the mercy of terrorists and bandits, who have been killing, maiming and kidnapping residents with reckless abandon.
