14-Year-Old Girl Abducted By Unknown Gunmen In Katsina State


A 14-year-old girl in Kankia Local Government Area of Katsina State has been abducted by unknown gunmen.

Father of the girl, Alhaji Salisu Mai-Tiles, said that the gunmen invaded his residence at Sabuwar-Abuja quarters in Kankia at about 1:30 am on Thursday.

According to him, three well-armed persons broke into his residence and demanded for money, while the remaining gang members stayed outside.

“They asked me to give them money, which I did; whatever they asked we never objected to their demand to save our lives, but unfortunately, they went with my 14-year-old daughter,” he said.

According to NAN, the gang members also blocked Katsina-Kano road in Kankia and robbed motorists at gunpoint.

This incident is coming 24 hours after a Canadian and an American were kidnapped in Katsina with two police officers shot dead in the process.

In a related development, suspected armed robbers have shot dead a policeman attached to WAPA Shopping Mall in Katsina on Thursday night and carted away undisclosed amount of money.

The police spokesperson is yet to confirm this.
