Gunmen abduct father, son in FCT

There was pandemonium on Sunday morning when gunmen stormed the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where they kidnapped a resident and his son.

WUZUPNIGERIA gathered that the gunmen invaded the Kuchiko Relocation Development Area (KRDA), popularly known as El-Rufa'i Estate, at 12 midnight, overpowered the security guards and started shooting sporadically.

The gunmen, who also wielded knives and machetes, headed to the house of the victims and abducted them.

The invaders, who operated for an hour, later proceeded to the house of another resident and attempted to kidnap him. They were, however, repelled by soldiers from the Defence College, Bwari, after a gun duel.

Some residents of the area, who recounted their ordeal, called on the authorities to beef up security around the satellite areas, Daily Trust reported.

The satellite towns in the FCT have been experiencing incidents of kidnapping for a while now, especially in Gwagwalada and Kuje area councils.
