Father and son abducted as gunmen break into Abuja home

Gunmen who broke into an Abuja home, have reportedly abducted one Abdullahi Benda, and his 23-year-old son, Jibrin Abdullahi Benda. 


The incident occurred at Yangoji village in Kwali Area council of Abuja in the wee hours of Friday September 3. 

A neighbour simply identified as Zakari said the kidnappers who positioned themselves at strategic places, scaled the fence of the victim’s house, forcefully destroyed the doors, went into the room and whisked away the man and one of his sons at gunpoint.


Zakari said; 

“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."


Spokesman of the FCT police command, ASP Daniel Y. Ndiparya confirmed the kidnap incident, saying the command was making efforts to ensure the kidnapped victims are rescued alive.


Ndiparya said; 

“Yes, we are aware and efforts are being made by the command to rescue the victims."
