Bandits storm another community in Abuja, abduct former PDP chairman, 22 other residents

About 40 heavily armed bandits, in the early hours of Thursday, stormed the Kawu community in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja and abducted 23 people.

Kawu shares boundaries with two states: Niger and Kaduna.

The Councilor representing the area, Abdulmumini Zakari, who is the deputy speaker in the council, said the gunmen arrived around the community on Wednesday from the Kuyeri Forest in Kaduna State.

His words: “They divided themselves into groups, and some went into the palace of the district head, Alhaji Abdurrahman Danjuma Ali, where they abducted his son, Lukman, and his wife, whom he married two weeks ago.

“Others attacked the compound of Alhaji Alhassan Sidi Kawu, the Marafa of Kawu and a former PDP Chairman of Kawu Ward. They abducted him along with his four children.”

He said the bandits also went into the compound of Sarkin Pawan Kawu and Gambo S Pawa and abducted him alongside his two wives and some children.

The FCT Police Command spokeswoman, S.P. Josephine Adeh, confirmed the incident.

“Some unknown hoodlums stormed Kawu village, a bordering community with Kagarko LGA, in Kaduna State, and kidnapped people. The truth is that the miscreants raided that general area and escaped into Kaduna State,” she told Daily Trust.
