Terrorist bandits have attacked the home of a pastor in Abuja and kidnapped his wife and teenage daughters.
The bandits abducted 45-year-old woman and two of her daughters at the Pegi community in Kuje area council of Abuja.
The victims whose names were given as Mrs Oladapo Bukola, her daughters, Moyo Oladapo, 17 and Glory Oladapo, 14, were kidnapped around 1:04 am on Sunday, September 5.
According to sources, the woman’s husband, Pastor Gabriel Oladapo, was out of Abuja when the kidnappers attacked.
The women were abducted two days after a father, Abdullahi Benda, and his 23 year-old son, Jibrin Abdullahi Benda, were kidnapped at Yangoji village, in Kwali Area council, of Abuja.
A resident simply identified as Abednego revealed to the media that the kidnappers, wielding AK-47 rifles, scaled the fence of the pastor’s house at a resettlement area in Zone A, and forced themselves into the apartment.
Mr Taiwo Aderibigbe, chairman of Pegi Community Development Association, (PECDA), who confirmed the abduction of the woman and her daughters, denounced the incessant kidnaps in the area, calling on security agencies to come to the rescue of the residents.
“It is quite worrisome, that Pegi, Kuje, is being targeted by kidnappers and security agencies are not doing much,” the PECDA chairman said.
Public relations officer of the FCT police command ASP Daniel Y Ndiparya, confirmed the incident, saying efforts were ongoing to rescue the victims.
“Efforts are being made by the command to ensure the victims are rescued.” he said.
