Kidnappers abduct man driving home with wife, on Abuja highway

Kidnappers abduct man driving home with wife, on Abuja highway

A resident of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, Abdullahi Sabo, has been kidnapped.

The news gathered by Touchaheart Nigeria from DailyTrust says Sabo and his wife were on their way home when unidentified gunmen intercepted their vehicle at Sabon-Lugbe on the Airport road in the nation’s capital.

The individual was driving his ash-colored Lexus SUV with license plate ABC 769 TP when the unfortunate event took place. Witnesses report that he had left the city center and was heading to his residence when assailants in an unmarked Golf car fired shots and punctured the SUV’s tyres.

One of the victim’s neighbours, Daramola Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said;

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

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. He also announced the arrest of some bandits and their informants.

The FCT police command is yet to comment on this development.
