Kaduna: Bandits release Kajuru PDP chairman’s family members


Kidnapped members of the Kajuru Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), chairman’s family in Kaduna State, were on Monday night released by their abductors.

A source close to the family said they were released on Monday night, after spending some weeks with the kidnappers.

Saga Gist recalls that seven family members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), chairman in Kajuru, were kidnapped a few weeks ago.

They include Joseph Barde, Gambo Barde, Obadiah yohanna Barde, Bamaiyi Joseph Barde, Blessing yohanna Barde, Jennifer yohanna Barde, Salama Gombo.

However, one of the kidnapped victims was earlier released on health grounds, while the bandits had placed a huge sum of money as ransom on others.

The bandits, however, released the remaining five members after killing one of them for failing to respond to their demands.

The source gave the names of those released as: Obadiah Barde, Bamaiyi Joseph, Salama Gambo, and Jennifer yohanna.

The Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige did not pick his calls, just as he did not respond to a text message sent to his mobile line.
