JUST IN : Bandits Abduct Woman, Three Children In Abuja



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

It was gathered that heavily armed men stormed the area between 8 pm and 9 pm, firing indiscriminately and causing pandemonium in the area.

“This kidnapping has become a regular occurrence here every December,” lamented one resident, who wished to remain anonymous. “If you remember very well, last December, The Punch (Newspaper) 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 a lack of adequate security in the area. Last night they kidnapped a whole family – a mother and her three children, including a six months 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 Federal Capital Territory Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, has acknowledged the incident and promised to provide further information as soon as possible

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