The Awelewa family in Kaduna State are in distress as unknown gunmen have kidnapped their five children between the ages of eight and eighteen. 

The incident took place at the Goin Gora area of the Chikun Local Government, Kaduna State.

Their father, Bamidele Awelewa, who reported the incident to the Police, said the kidnappers gained entry into his compound by breaking the fence and whisked away his children while they were sleeping in their room.

According to Mr. Awelewa, the kidnappers tortured the children and ordered the family to look for an undisclosed money to pay as ransom.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, and the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, commiserated with the family during their visit and got first-hand information about the incident.

The Commissioner of Police urged residents of the State to provide information to security agencies whenever they notice suspicious activities.
