It was gathered that one Adenike, currently observing the mandatory one-year service, was kidnapped in her father’s home, while Miss Adenike who is the only daughter of her parents was also abducted when the gunmen stormed the Abuja estate on Tuesday night.

The kidnappers reportedly shot sporadically to frighten residents, leaving two persons injured in the process and resulting in one allegedly dying on the spot while the other was rushed to the hospital after the bandits made away with the victims abducted.

FCT police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, in a statement on Wednesday morning, said officers “immediately” responded to the incident and are currently on the trail of the attackers.
