Bandits Abduct 20 In Abuja

by Silverbird News24

About twenty residents of Dawaki, a community near Kubwa in the Federal Capital Territory, have been kidnapped.

The attackers were said to have raided houses on Frank Opara Street before security operatives responded to distress calls.

The Chairman of Dawaki Rock Heaven Community, Tunde Abdulrahim, who spoke to newsmen on Monday, said the incident happened at aboutseven thirty pm on Sunday.

Abdulrahim said the armed men, numbering about fifty, invaded the community and broke into about six houses.

Commenting on the attack, the FCT police spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh, said in a statement on Monday that the Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igweh, led policemen to the scene and engaged the kidnappers in a gun battle.

This led to a fierce gun duel as the hoodlums were overwhelmed by the firepower of the operatives, forcing them to scamper to safety with various degrees of bullet injuries, and the victims were rescued
