A corps member simply identified as Adenike, and seven others have been abducted by suspected kidnappers in Extension 2 Relocation, along Arab Road, Kubwa area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Tuesday night, December 6.
Punch reports that Adenike who is currently observing the mandatory National Youth Service, was kidnapped in her father’s home.
A source was quoted as saying that two others escaped while they were being whisked away through the hills by the kidnappers.
“Adenike, the landlord’s only daughter who’s currently doing her NYSC has been kidnapped. We’re confused now because several others are also missing.
Seven others were kidnapped alongside Adenike. But two others, among the ten earlier kidnapped, escaped and are safe now.” the source said
The gunmen attacked a residence in the Extension 2 Relocation, along Arab Road, in Kubwa, and shot two males, with one of the gunshot victims dying on the spot, while the other was rushed to the hospital. The gunmen shot sporadically at Amilonania Street and later moved to Toyin Street.
“We heard gunshots twice when they first stormed a house at Amilonania Street. They’re now at Toyin Street, at the last house by the hill. They shot a tailor, Abel, popularly known as Oshodi, and he’s lying down dead. They also shot another male, but we have taken him to the Kubwa General Hospital at Phase 4, but he was unconscious. The gunmen escaped through the hill.”another source said
