The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), has alleged that over 40 people, including members of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church Movement, in Bayan Kasuwa Quarters of Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna state, have been abducted by terrorists.

According to a report by The Punch on Monday, September 19, the union in a statement by its national president, Dr. Awemi Maisamari, disclosed that the bandits had reached out to families and were demanding N200m before the abductees could regain their freedom.

SOKAPU also revealed that the incidents took place on Monday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 13, at the Kasuwan Magani area of Kajuru LGA, some few kilometres away from the metropolis.

Maisamari noted that there was still no breathing space for communities in the southern part of the state as terrorists kept attacking residents.

He said:

“There is still no breathing space for communities in Southern Kaduna. Terrorists, jihadists, bandits and armed herdsmen, have continued to plunder and wreck communities in the southern part of the state.

He added:

“As at now, 45 people have so far been confirmed abducted.

“Yesterday, however, September 18, 2022, the abductors made contact with some people in the town via phone calls and claimed that only 40 persons were held by them.
