After One Month, Kidnappers Keep 2 Women in Taraba, Free 3


Three out of five women abducted along Takum-Tor Damisa road in Takum Local Government Area of Taraba State have regained freedom.

The five women, who are traders, were traveling from Takum town to Tor Damisa in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State when they were abducted and taken to the forest.

Daily Trust gathered that three of the five women abducted four weeks ago regained freedom after ransom was paid.

A resident of Takum, Musa Dauda, told Daily Trust that the five women who are Yoruba from one of the southwest states are living in Takum town.

He said the two other women are still being held by the kidnappers suspected to be Tiv militia.

Dauda said suspected Tiv militia were responsible for most of the kidnapping and armed robbery incidents along Takum-Wukari road, Takum-Katsina Ala road and Takum-Chanchangi road.
