The bandits who abducted a pregnant woman in Jalingo, Taraba State, have refused to release her despite being in labour.
The Daily Reality gathered that the bandits kept demanding for ransom to release the woman.
The woman who fell into labour in captivity was said to have visited her parents for maternity leave from Kano.
However, the bandits called the father of the abducted pregnant woman and demanded immediate ransom.
It was gathered that the shooters, who targeted three houses in the area, operated for about forty minutes without any interruption.
DSP Usman Abdullahi, the police spokesperson of Taraba Command, confirmed the abduction of the pregnant woman and six others.
Banditry and kidnapping are the significant security challenges bedevilling the country over the years.
The menacing security challenge lingers despite the threats and promises by the federal government to mitigate the issue.
