Pictures of three women kidnapped along Abuja-Kaduna highway surface

Pictures of three women, who were kidnapped alongside 19 others in Anguwar Maji, Jere town, along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway, have surfaced.
The pictures were shared by a Kano-based journalist, Jafar Jafar on Facebook.
Report has it that the armed men overran the village around 11pm on Sunday.
A resident, Shehu Bala, reportedly stated that the armed bandits came in their numbers and immediately began to ransack houses.
The captors were said to have taken with them 22 persons, five of whom were women.
“The bandits came in their large numbers as some of them wore army uniforms.
“They moved from house to house and woke their victims up before they marched them into the bush at gunpoint,” he said.
According to him, the bandits operated silently in the community for over an hour.
He added that they only started shooting sporadically to scare people from coming after them after leaving the community.
Bala, however, said one among the 22 kidnapped victims escaped from his abductors while being led into the bush.

The spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Mohammed Jalinge, could not be reached at the time of filing this report.
