Kidnappers Open Fire On Abuja Highway, Abduct Man Driving Home With Wife




Amidst the rising insecurity in Abuja, Abdullahi Sabo, a resident of the nation’s capital, has become a kidnapping victim.

While on his way home with his wife, Sabo’s vehicle was intercepted by gunmen at Sabon-Lugbe, Airport road in the capital city.

Driving his Ash-colored Lexus Jeep with the registration number ABC 769 TP, the unfortunate incident occurred as he was leaving the city center to return home.

Reports indicate that attackers in an unmarked Golf car fired shots and punctured the tires of the victim’s jeep.

One of the victim’s neighbors, Daramola Joseph, who spoke through telephone with our reporter, confirmed Sabo’s abduction.

“They shot the tyres, forcing the vehicle to stop, but before they could get close to the jeep, the man’s wife had escaped. However, they went away with the husband,” he said.

“The man with his wife were returning from the city center and heading towards the access road to Jedo Estate when the gunmen struck.”

Contacted, spokeswoman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command, SP Adeh Josephine, said she would find out and get back to our reporter.

However, she had not done so as of the time of filing this report.

The development comes less than 48 hours after gunmen invaded Army Estate in Kurudu, still in Abuja, and abducted some residents.

At townhall meetings in Bwari and Gwagwalada Area Councils, Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, assured residents of their safety, saying adequate security measures had been put in place.
