Salisu Mai-Tiles was asleep with his family and at about 1:30a.m. on Thursday he could hear strange sounds and he woke up to find out that armed men had gained access into his house.

They had come in like thieves but left as kidnappers.

Three of them had forced their way into his home in Sabuwar-Abuja quarters in Kankia Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Mr Mai-Tiles said the three well-armed persons demanded for money, while the remaining gang members stayed outside.

“They asked me to give them money, which I did. Whatever they asked we never objected to their demand to save our lives,” he said.

Their obedience, however, could not stop the thieves from kidnapping his 14-year old daughter.
