Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted six residents of Tungan-Maje community in Gwagwalada area council, Abuja.

A resident, identified as Yahaya said the incident happened around 11:46 pm on Monday when the kidnappers in their large numbers with sophisticated weapons invaded some houses at Anguwar Dabiri and Anguwar Sarki within the metropolis.

He said the kidnappers divided themselves into three groups before attacking three houses in the area adding that some of the gunmen shot into the air while matching the victims out of the community.

“Some of the kidnappers positioned themselves at strategic positions, while others entered the house and whisked away the victims into the bush,” he said.

The district head of Tungan-Maje, Alhaji Hussaini Barde, confirmed the latest kidnap incident, saying six persons were abducted by gunmen on Monday night in the area.

“In fact, activities of kidnappers in Tungan-Maje have been causing a nightmare to my people. And I can tell you that since September last year till date, we have recorded 9 deadly attacks by kidnappers,” he said.

He, therefore, appealed to the security authorities to come to the aid of his subjects by deploying enough personnel to the area in order to checkmate activities of the kidnappers in the Abuja community.

The spokesperson of the FCT police command, ASP Maryam Yusuf, could not be reached for comment, while a text message sent to her phone was not replied to,
