Kidnappers invade Abuja community, abduct two sisters


Two teenage sisters were abducted by suspected bandits in Guita community, Chikakore, Kubwa, Bwari Area Council, FCT, Abuja.

The incident occurred despite protests about the deteriorating road conditions linked to serial kidnappings.

The gunmen, numbering six, escaped with the 16 and 14-year-old girls through the nearby forests and hills.

Authorities, including military and police, were unable to prevent the abduction. Subsequently, the kidnappers demanded a N30 million ransom for the release of the girls, leaving one of the siblings behind as a messenger.

The source said, “The gunmen have changed their approach, when they came; they didn’t shoot like before, but forced themselves inside. While they were forcing themselves inside, the owner of the house (a Calabar man) ran to the vigilante’s office, then, he ran to the commander’s house before the commander could call another person, and rush to his house, the gunmen were already gone.

“It was when they were going, they started shooting, unlike before that they would shoot before the operation and till the end.

“They took three of his children, two girls and one boy, but they went away with two and sent back one (the boy) from the bush that he should go and tell their father to prepare 30million naira for their ransom.

“When they were taken, the two girls (16 and 14 years) one of the girls was wearing night gown, the mother tried to plead with the gunmen to let her wear something for the cold, but instead they beat up the mother. She had no option than to just let the girls go the way they were under the cold.

“Before the police came to the scene, they were already gone. Some of the vigilante later traced them to the railway line, to the rocks but there was no trace anymore.

“The man that his daughters were kidnapped is a front liner security payment and he has made several donations to the community.”

However, Josephine Adeh, FCT police spokesperson, when contacted by SaharaReporters, promised to get the details and to revert.
