Gunmen Strike In Abuja , Kidnap Three Children


Bandits attacked the Zone 5 segment of the Kubwa Extension 2 Relocation Estate, along Arab Road in the Federal Capital Territory, kidnapping a woman and her three children, including a six-month-old baby on Sunday night.

The gunmen struck the area between the hours of 8 and 9 pm on Sunday, shooting sporadically and causing pandemonium in the area.

Meanwhile, it was gathered that there was no security intervention during the attack.

Speaking over the development, a resident who preferred not to be named revealed that kidnapping has become a usual occurrence in the area every December.

He said, “This kidnapping has become a regular occurrence here every December. If you remember very well, last December, they reported a similar incident of abduction in the area. Now, this is another one, and it is worrisome.”

Another resident noted, “This kidnapping is due to the lack of adequate security in the area. Last night, they kidnapped a whole family – a mother and her three children, including a six-month-old baby here at Zone 5, Kubwa Extension 2 Relocation Estate.”

The FCT Police Command was yet to make an official comment concerning the development as of press time. The FCT CP, Haruna Garba, did not respond to phone calls by our correspondent on Monday.

When contacted , the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, promised to find out about the development and revert.

“I will find out and get back to you as soon as possible please,” Adeh said.
