BREAKING: Tension In Abuja As Gunmen Invade El-Rufai Estate, Abduct Residents
Suspected kidnappers have invaded the popular El-Rufai Estate in the Kuchiko Resettlement Development Area of Bwari Local Council of Abuja and abducted a resident identified as Chinedu.
The incident reportedly happened in the early hours of Saturday.
According to Daily Trust, the victim was whisked away from his house within the estate.
While confirming the incident, the victim’s wife said the hoodlums came heavily armed and forcefully took away her husband.
She said the gunmen broke through the fence to gain entrance into their compound.
“They shot sporadically in the air to scare our family members and neighbours before taking my husband away,” the wife said.
She, however, said the kidnappers were yet to contact the family as of press time.
The chairman of the Kuchiko Resettlement Development Area, Mai Baba Bego, disclosed that the latest incident brought to five the number of kidnapping cases that occurred in the area in the last couple of months.
“We now live in fear as nobody knows who the next victim would be,” Mr Bego said.
He called for the deployment of security personnel to the area to avert further incidents.
