Kidnappers Abduct Man Driving Home With Wife in Abuja


By Kamsi Anayo

Amid the rising wave of insecurity in Abuja, Abdullahi Sabo, a resident of the nation’s capital, has been abducted.

Sabo was heading home with his wife when gunmen intercepted his vehicle at Sabon-Lugbe, Airport road in the nation’s capital.

The victim was driving in his Ash color Lexus Jeep with registration number ABC 769 TP when the unfortunate incident occurred.

It was gathered that he had left the city centre and was heading home when the attackers inside an unmarked Golf car opened fire and deflated tyres of the jeep.

One of the victim’s neighbours, who confirmed his abduction said 

“They shot the tyres, forcing the vehicle to stop, but before they could get close to the jeep, the man’s wife had escaped. However, they went away with the husband.

“The man with his wife were returning from the city center and heading towards the access road to Jedo Estate when the gunmen struck.”

Contacted, spokeswoman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command, SP Adeh Josephine, said she would find out and get back to our reporter.

However, she had not done so as of the time of filing this report.

The development comes less than 48 hours after gunmen invaded Army Estate in Kurudu, still in Abuja, and abducted two residents.

At a town hall meetings in Bwari and Gwagwalada Area Councils, Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, assured residents of their safety, saying adequate security measures had been put in place.

He also announced the arrest of some bandits and their informants.
