8 Women Kidnapped In Abuja

Barely 48 hours after gunmen abducted the father of the vice chairman of Kwali Area Council of the FCT, alongside six others, in Yewuti village in Kwali, eight women were again abducted on a farm in Gwombe village in Gwargwada Chiefdom in Kuje Area Council of the territory.

A resident of Gwargwada, Usman Yakubu, said the incident happened around 5pm on Monday.

He said the women, all housewives, harvesting benni seed when the gunmen wielding AK-47 rifles appeared and surrounded them.

A chief from a village in the chiefdom, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the abduction, saying, “In fact, four among the women are from one house.”

He added that, “I suspect that these gunmen that abducted our women are among those ones that escaped from neighbouring Kabbi village who were roaming inside the bush after Miyetti Allah vigilantes neutralised some of them over the weekend.”

There was no response from the spokeswoman of the FCT Police Command, SP Adeh Josephine, over the incident.
