The parent of a school child abducted around a significant landmark in Kaduna North this morning, was magnificently rescued by a passer-by who rode a bike to trail the kidnappers.
DENISAURUS News understand that “the man went to drop his child in the school this morning, when he was accosted by abductors and asked to get into their vehicle.”
According to a source on ground, it is not certain if the incidence which happened along the Rafin Guza road was random.
The witness said: “Nobody can say with certainty whether it was a random attack. It is not been confirmed if the kidnappers had information about the man or maybe they picked him randomly.”
A man on bike who saw the incident, immediately trailed the victim who was driven towards Rafin Guza and Kawo over head bridge junction.
It was at Kawo Bus stop opposite NIPCO Filling station that the man who was still on his bike, began to scream to alert people who helped to stop the car, which DENISAURUS News was told was a Sienna.
Upon hearing the scream, youths in the area brought out the driver of the car and began to beat him and his accomplice. One of the abductors, our source said was killed and the other was rescued by the police.
The police had to use tear gas to disperse the crowd from the scene.
There has been a spate of kidnapping across Nigeria over the past few months.
Muhammed Mahmood, the board chairman of the Universal Basic Education Commission and his daughter were recently rescued after they were kidnapped around Katari village, which is along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
So far, the police attached to Operation Puff Adder, which was launched by the acting inspector general of police Mohammed Adamu on April 5, has successfully apprehended those involved in the operation.
Following the arrest of the master minds, Nasir El-rufai, the Governor of Kaduna gave more assurance to commuters about the Kaduna-Abuja road.
Despite his assurances, sources who today reported the case of the attempt to abduct a man in the state, said more needs to be done as kidnapping was becoming rampant.
