In the last 72 hours, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has come under siege by men of the underworld who have kidnapped some residents in different locations.
The kidnappers abducted a lecturer at Base University Abuja, Abubakar Alkali and two teenagers abducted on Saturday.

The father of one of the victims, Ardo, an Adamawa-based politician, in a statement released on Sunday, confirmed his daughter’s abduction and said no one has heard from her abductors.
“My daughter, Ai’shat Umar Ardo (Ummi)), 24, was kidnapped at Blinkers Shopping mall, No.46 Nkwame Nkurma crescent, Asokoro around 7:45pm yesterday. They put her in an ash Camry and zoomed off.
“Nothing is heard of her since, and no call is yet received from them. Your prayer is needed. Thank you.” the statement read
