An official of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, has been killed after suspected kidnappers abducted the wife and child of a reporter with the Voice of America, VOA, in Kaduna State, yesterday. Nasir Birnin-Yero, the reporter, told newsmen that the abductors, about 30 in number, attacked his residence in Birnin Yero, near Kaduna around 1:30a.m.

According to him,
“they came to my house at about 1:30a.m. I was not at home then, but they forced themselves into my house and asked my wife about my whereabouts and she told them I was not at home.

“They vandalised my television set and refrigerator before taking my wife and son, insisting that they must lead them to me.

“One of my neighbours, who works with FRSC, Sabitu Abdulhamid, was shot dead by the kidnappers when he rushed out in an attempt to save my family. The kidnappers have not made any contact yet.”

Umar Ibrahim, FRSC Sector Commander in the state, confirmed the death of the corps personnel and described the incident as very unfortunate. Ibrahim described the deceased as a very hard-working person, who was also a member of the community’s vigilante.

The Sector Commander said:
“I am just coming back from the burial. It is a sad day for members of his family and the entire FRSC family.”
