Unkonwn gunmen attacked and kidnapped one reverend Solomon Jediel of malum community, a suburb of Ardo-Kola Local Government Area, in Taraba State.
Business Influx gathered that the gunmen also raided the whole community.
According to the wife of the victim, Lucy Solomon, the kidnappers shot without targets into the air, beats her up and abducted her husband.
“We were about to sleep when my husband asked me to look through the window and then I saw the abductors. When they got closer, they flashed torchlight at us and asked my husband to come out and follow them or else they will shoot him.
“He obliged and opened the door. Then, they started beating every member of the family. They threatened to kill me and asked me to bring the money at home, I brought it and they left with the money, my husband and my daughter’s credentials.
“They later contacted my son, instructing him to start making some savings for his father’s release.”
However, the district superintendent of the church, Reverend Philip Jedian, has urged the government and security agencies to wake up and ensure security of those in the community.
He said, ‘’it is a case too many, the state government and security agencies should wake up to the responsibility of protection of lives and property.”
