Some gunmen who stormed an Abuja residence abducted a man, his son, but spared his wife because she is a nursing mother.
The man, Abdullahi Benda and his 23-year-old son Jibrin Abdullahi were kidnapped at Yangoji village in Kwali Area council of Abuja.
The victims’ neighbour, identified as Zakari, said the incident happened early Friday morning.
Zakari stated that the kidnappers scaled the house perimeter fence before gaining access to the family.
“In fact, one of the kidnappers was even standing at a window at the back of my room shooting into the air, because it is a fence that separates us with the victim.”
“The other members of the gang jumped over the fence and entered the house.
“They attempted whisking away the man’s wife, but they later spared her after discovering that she was nursing a baby,” said Zakari.
Meanwhile, FCT-Abuja Police Command ASP Daniel Y. Ndiparya confirmed the incident.
He said the police are making efforts to rescue the victims.
