A fresh attack has been recorded as bandits invaded a farm at Sheda village of Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.

According to Daily Trust report, a couple, Sunday Odoma Ojarume and Janet Odoma Ojarume, were abducted at Sheda village in Kwali area council, on Sunday, but the kidnappers later released the victim’s wife and asked her to source for ransom.

It was also reported that the village shares a fence with FGC, Kwali, which was shut after the couple’s kidnap.

ELANZANEWS reports that on Monday the Federal Ministry of Education had directed the closure of all Federal Government Colleges, FGCs, in Abuja following security threats on the unity colleges located in the FCT.

According to a resident of Chida community, Dangana Musa, a driver alongside his conductor were abducted in the latest attack, which occurred on Thursday evening.

He said the driver identified as Atazamu Azaki and his conductor, Ayuba John, went to load charcoal at a farm in the area when the bandits broke in.

He said the kidnappers who wielded sophisticated weapons whisked the duo away at gunpoint, but later released John who was asked to go and inform the victim’s family members about the abduction.

“It was after they trekked some distance that the kidnappers released the conductor and asked him to go home and inform the family of the driver to raise money for ransom,” Mr Musa said.
