Bandits Execute Four Captives In Kaduna State


Fears gripped the people  of Dnata chiefdom under Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Saturday morning, following the execution of four captives by kidnappers within the community.

Dnata chiefdom has its headquarters in Tafa town, located along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway in the area council.

A community leader in the area, John Alpha Dogo, told Daily Trust that the bandits dragged their four captives, three females and one male to a location around a former military checkpoint behind Idah junction on Bwari-Jere SCC road and executed them.

He said the incident took place about 11 pm Friday, when gunshots were heard around the location, but mistaken as that of the security patrol team.

“It was this morning that we came to discover the incident,” Dogo added.


He said residents of Bagye and Pashin villages in the chiefdom were leaving in drove toward Bwari town following the incident.

It was suspected that the bandits had brought out the victims from their camp around the axis, over a failed ransom negotiation, according to one of the residents.

It was  learnt that the police from Tafa Division had taken the remains of the victims to a hospital around the community.

The chief of Dnata, His Royal Highness HRH Mr. Bitrus James, confirmed the incident.
