Gunmen Invade Army Estate In Abuja, Abduct Two Residents

Some gunmen, suspected to be kidnappers on Thursday night, stormed the Nigeria Army Estate in Abuja, abducting two residents.

It was gathered that the incident happened at about 10:00 p.m. in the Phase 2 area of the estate, when the gunmen took the wife and one of the in-laws of one Barrister Cyril Adikwu.

Confirming the incident, Austine John, who is a neighbor to the victim, in a chat with Vanguard, disclosed that the culprits came in and started shooting while they invaded the barrister’s house and left with his wife and in-law while the barrister escaped.

He said: “It all started at about 10:00 we suddenly started hearing gunshots, and immediately we knew something was wrong. I quickly went out to make sure my gate was well locked.

“Then we heard the gunshot in the barrister’s house, and then we alerted the estate’s management, who immediately swung into action. In a short time, army people came around and started shooting too, but before they came, the kidnappers had taken the wife and one of the in-laws of the barrister.

“This is really traumatising because we could not sleep throughout the night due to fear of the kidnappers coming back. President Tinubu should please help Nigerians put an end to this barbaric act by the kidnappers.”
