Man shot while trying to stop abduction of sonís wives in Munya


HELL was let loose in Zazzaga community in the Munya Local Government Area of Niger State, as a 54-year-old man, Musa Adamu, was shot dead by suspected kidnappers on Tuesday.

He was reportedly killed while trying to rescue his sonís wives that were abducted by some criminals operating in the area.

It was learnt that residents of the community had been relocating in droves following the activities of kidnappers in the neighbourhood.

Northern City News gathered that the gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday attacked the community, kidnapping three people.

Checks revealed that the incident happened barely 72 hours after the community paid about N10m to secure the release of five out of 10 persons that were earlier abducted by some hoodlums.

Our correspondent also gathered that the incident took place at Gidan Banobi Village, about 10 kilometres from Sarkin Pawa, the headquarters of Munya council at about 2am.

The district head of Zazzaga, Musa Umoru, who confirmed the latest attack to our correspondent on the telephone, said the attackers were earlier repelled from Sabon-Gidan by members of the local vigilance group before they moved to Banobi village to carry out their nefarious acts.

He said, ďThese villages are among the few villages that the people have yet to move out, people have relocated from every other village in this community in the last one month.

ďAs I speak with you, people are moving their property to neighbouring villages because the government has refused to come to our aid. My people have sold everything they have to pay ransom, including farm produce.Ē

Umoru disclosed that the entire Zazzaga community and about 50 other villages with a population of over 1,000 inhabitants had only one police outpost.
