Suspected gunmen have kidnapped 77 persons at Libere village in the Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to reports, the village head of neighbouring Kalla, Aminu Na’Iri who confirmed the incident said eight members of a family, including the wife and children, are among the kidnapped persons.
The incident reportedly occurred on Wednesday, 21 April.
Libere village is located around a thick forest across River Kaduna from Kasuwan Magani Kalla village which makes it hard for security operatives to respond quickly to any attack in the area.
This latest development is coming after three of the abducted Greenfield University students were confirmed dead on Friday.
