NIGERIA. Kaduna: Idon village in Kajuru Local Government Area, Kaduna State, has been plunged into mourning after 22 locals were kidnapped and four others were severely injured by people suspected to be Boko Haram members.
The criminals invaded the community along the Kaduna-Kachia road at about 12:30 GMT and 12:30 PM local time, according to Bala Jonathan, a councilor representing the region.
Jonathan went on to say that the “evil duas” came to town and began shooting at random.
“The attackers arrived in large numbers and went house to house looking for people.”
Justina, Mary Joseph, Rejoice, Stephen Joseph, Samson Ladan, Christiana David, Boniface David, Helen Aminu, Mirabel Aminu, Precious Philemon, Nelson Philemon, and Christoan Philemon are the victims, according to Jonathan.

According to a recent report, the Nigerian Airforce (NAF) special squad assisted in the rescue of approximately 42 people in various rescue missions reportedly taken away by bandits along the Birnin-Gwari road in Kaduna state.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 3.2 million people have been displaced, including over 2.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the North-East, over 684,000 IDPs in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger, and 304,000 refugees in the four countries (UNHCR).
However, as of the time of filing this report, neither the security agents nor the state government had issued an official statement about the heinous incident.
Insurgent activities in Nigeria have resulted in a large number of orphans, widows, and widowers.
