Gunmen Kill 13 Persons In Benue Communities

Unknown gunmen have stormed the home of one Abdullahi Benda, abducting him and his 23-year-old son, Jibrin, at Yangoji village in Kwali Area council of Abuja.

According to Zakari, a neighbour simply said that the kidnappers positioned themselves at strategic places at the wee hours of Friday, scaling the fence to kidnap the victims.

“In fact, one of the kidnappers was even standing at a window at the back of my room shooting into the air, because it is a fence that separates us from the victim.”

“The other members of the gang jumped over the fence and entered the house,” he said.

He added that the kidnappers destroyed the properties before entering the house to whisk away the man and one of his sons at gunpoint.

He added, “They attempted whisking away the man’s wife, but they later spared her after discovering that she was nursing a baby,” he added.

The spokesman of the FCT police command, ASP Daniel Y. Ndiparya, who spoke to Daily Trust confirmed the incident, saying the command was making efforts to ensure the kidnapped victims are rescued alive.

“Yes, we are aware and efforts are being made by the command to rescue the victims,” he said.
