Kidnappers armed to the teeth have invaded El-Rufai state in the Bwari area of Abuja early Saturday morning.

Chairman of Kuchiko Resettlement Development Area (KRDA), Baba Bego, confirmed the incident to journalists.

According to him, the kidnappers arrived shooting sporadically into the air before abducting a resident.

The victim, Chinedu, was whisked away from his house within the estate.

The victim’s wife said the kidnappers forcefully took away her husband after breaking through the fence to gain entrance into their compound.

“They shot sporadically in the air to scare our family members and neighbours before taking my husband away, ” the wife said.

They were yet to establish contact with the family as at the time of filing this report.

Bego said the latest incident has brought to five, the number of kidnapping cases that have occurred in the area in the last couple of months.
