Unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers reportedly stormed Jibi community on Monday night kidnapping the Community chief (Esu Jibi), Ibrah Dahiru Liman and injured two vigilantes who attempted to rescue the victim.

JIBI is a community directly behind Mopol 45 (Ibrahim Abubakar Barrack) along Deidei – Zuba Express way.

According to an eyewitness, Alex Minga, the kidnappers invaded the Community at about 10PM on Monday night.

Minga said, “The community at about 10 pm to 11pm yesterday, started hearing gun shots which experts confirmed to be sound of AK47.
“Everyone in the community is now completely terrified as through out the night there were exchange of gun shots with the kidnappers but they, however, succeeded in Kidnapping the Village Chief of Jibi.

Minga lamented that despite the community sharing boundary with Mopol 45 barracks, Jibi has suffered serious kidnappers’ attacks without any reasonable help from the police.

“This is about the fourth time the community is being attacked this year and the police will only come after the incident and claim they are on top of the situation. For how long will this continue?”

“The fear of who is next has completed beclouded the community and no one is sleeping with two eye closed any more. Something has to be done fast before it gets out of hand.”

Another resident who was a victim of the suspected kidnappers on the 26 March, 2021, Simon Abah, called on the appropriate authorities to kindly shift attention to the community before everyone is kidnapped in Jibi.

“I appeal to the Niger State government, the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCT), the Nigerian Police Force and other security operatives to, as a matter of urgency, come to their rescue in Jibi community before everyone is kidnapped.”

Esu Jibi’s abductors are yet to establish contact with the family.
