Terrorists believed to be Fulani militia have launch yet another daring attack on Gwantu Kurmi Community, the headquarters of Sanga Local Governnment Area and kidnapped a Student of the Kaduna State University, a perserby while one other person sustained injury from gunshot.
President of Gwantu People’s Progressive Union, Prince Bala Audu who confirmed the incident to the PUNCH on Monday, said Joshua Victor Arumbus of the Department of Architecture, Kaduna State University and a perserby, Mr. Simon were kidnapped while one person was critically injured.
According to him, the armed men invaded the community on Saturday at around 9:13pm on foot and started shooting indiscriminately at the residents.
It would be recalled that sometimes in August 2021, the Son of the administrative officer to the President Alhaji Sanusi Maikano and the Son of the District Head of Gwantu, Alhaji Boni Bashir were kidnapped in Gwantu.
But Bala decried the increasing incidences of Kidnapping within Sanga Local Government while calling on the Security agencies to improve on their response to distress calls from the communities.
“It is must unfortunate that this incident happened just a halve kilometer away from the Gwantu Police Divisional Headquarters and the Headquarters of the Operation Safe Haven in Gwantu,” Bala said while calling on the Kaduna State Government to take drastic measures in curtailing the security menace ravaging the State.
Bala also urged the Local Government to form community taskforce that will use any available legal means to defend themselves since the ugly incidence have become a daily occurrence.
