Suspected kidnappers on Monday night abducted four Rufus Giwa Polytechnic graduates on their way to Zamfara State for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp, Nigerian cable news online has gathered.

The victims, including three male and a female were kidnapped around Funtua in Katsina State at about 11:30pm by armed men who laid a siege to the road.

As a result of this action, security officials renewed their advice to commuters to avoid night travels especially in areas where there are security threats.

It was gathered that the victims and some of their school mates who were posted to Zamfara State were travelling on a chartered bus from Owo, Ondo State to the camp site ahead of yesterday’s opening of the orientation camp.

While some of the occupants were able to escape and hide in the surrounding bush, the kidnapped four were not fortunate as the armed men whisked them away.

It was gathered that one of the occupants, who escaped, contacted the parents of some of the victims to notify them of the incident.

She also went to the police station to incident it.

It was also gathered that the kidnappers, who could only speak Hausa, have established contact with some relatives of the victims but there were hiccups because neither side had a translator.

“The graduated students chartered a bus from Owo to Zamfara State where they were posted for NYSC. The bus was to take them directly to the camp. Their families last heard from them around 4pm on Monday when they got to Zaria only for Tolu to call Tuesday morning that kidnappers attacked them and took four persons.

“No ransom has been demanded yet but the kidnappers have contacted some of the parents but because they were speaking Hausa, there wasn’t much communication.

“We are appealing to security agencies to rescue these children safely and the government has to direct NYSC to reconsider posting prospective corps members to areas their lives will be endangered,” said a source.

Police spokesman DCP Frank Mba said the Katsina State command had commenced a manhunt for the suspects with a view to rescue the victims unhurt.

He said: “It is true. Four of them were kidnapped around 11:30pm. The command has launched a manhunt for their captors in order to ensure their safe rescue. The command is making progress in its investigation and operation.”

A 47-year-old woman, Mrs. Victoria Agori, has narrated how the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring team shot her 21-year-old son, Daniel, in her presence before stripping her naked.

Victoria, who was full of emotions while speaking with SaharaReporters on Monday in Abuja at the #ENDSARS protest, said she would not forget the tragic incident in a hurry.

The incident happened on May 11, 2019 at 4, Nyege Close, Gbei Road in Nkpolu, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The victim was branded a kidnapper and armed robber by the police before being killed.

She said the policemen stormed their house and arrested her two sons – Daniel and David and a family friend before snuffing life out of the first.

According to her, the law enforcement agents first shot her David in the leg and thereafter forced the nozzle of a gun into her private part, which made her to bleed profusely.

She explained further that the policemen invaded their house on the invitation of her first daughter, Blessing, whom she said was dating one of the officers.

The grieving mother disclosed that Blessing had threatened to deal with her and other members of the family over a minor issue

She said, “Blessing threatened to kill us. She invited the policemen. They came in two vehicles and shot into the air. One of the bullets bruised David’s lap.

“They used the gun to hit me and Daniel’s girlfriend. They broke all our louvers and took away N200,000 cash from our house. While they were taking us to their base at Aluu, they collected N3,000 from Daniel and used it to buy fuel.

“Two officers forced my legs open and inserted the nozzle of the gun into my private part. I was bleeding even while I was in their office, there was blood everywhere.”

She explained that when she got to their office, the policemen had beaten Daniel with a pestle and shot him in her presence, adding that the police cooked up a lie that Daniel was a kidnapper and armed robber.

“They confirmed to me that my son was dead. My late son was a footballer and was into hairstyling. They claimed they found a gun in one of the rooms but that was a lie. They are only saying that after killing him. The police lied against my son after killing him.”

Since that period, Victoria and the rest of the family are yet to get justice for their loss and the assault on them by policemen.

According to her, the police authorities have been shielding the perpetrators of that gruesome act from prosecution as stipulated by the law.
