Bandits reportedly abduct Ango Abdullahi’s family members, others in fresh Kaduna attack



Bandits have reportedly abducted a woman and her four children at Yakawada village, Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The woman is the daughter-in-law of Alhaji Rilwanu Saidu, the head of Yakawa village, who is the elder brother of the Chairman of the Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF), Prof. Ango Abdullahi.

The incident came about five months after Abdullahi’s son, Sadiq, was abducted alongside 60 others by terrorists during the March 28 attack on the Abuja-Kaduna passenger train.
