Gunmen kill motorcyclist, abduct council chair in Kaduna

Gunmen on Sunday evening killed a commercial motorcyclist and abducted the Interim Chairman of Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Dr. Bege Katuka.

Daily Trust gathered that the chairman was abducted on his way to his farm around Kidinu, a small settlement in Maraban Rido of Chikun Local Government Area around 4:00 pm.

It was gathered that the commercial motorcyclist was hired by the council chairman to take him to the farm.

Multiple sources have confirmed the abduction.

“The incident happened around 4-5 pm on Sunday on his way to the farm. He left his car somewhere and hired a commercial motorcycle operator to take him to the farm but on their way, they were attacked by the gunmen. The motorcyclist was shot dead while they whisked the interim chairman away.  We suspect he was trailed because he was not a familiar face around this area,” one source said.
