On Sunday, 5th September by 1:04 am, gunmen suspected to be kidnappers abducted a 45-year-old woman and two of her daughters at Pegi Community of Kuje Area Council.
The victims were identified as Mrs Oladipo Bukola, her daughters, Moyo Oladipo, 17-years-old and Glory Oladipo, 14-year-old.
After the kidnap, it was gathered that the father of the abducted, Pastor Gabriel Oladipo was not in Abuja during the time of the incident.
In the Kwali Area Council of the F.C.T, a father, Abdullahi Benda, and his 23 year-old son, Jibrin Abdullahi Benda were kidnapped in Yangoji village.
According to Daily Trust, a resident simply identified as Abednego said the kidnappers, wielding AK-47 rifles, scaled the fence of the victims’ house at a resettlement area in Zone A, and forced the doors open.
The chairman of Pegi Community Development Association, (PECDA), Mr Taiwo Aderibigbe, who confirmed the abduction of the woman and her daughters, decried incessant kidnaps in the area, urging 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 alleged.
The state of security in the FCT and surely other parts of the country is worrisome. Citizens no longer feel secure in their homes, offices and market places. The chairmen of communities are alleging that the security agencies are slacking in their efforts to protect the citizens.
Spokesman of the FCT Police Command ASP Daniel Y Ndiparya, who confirmed the incident said efforts were ongoing to rescue the victims.
“Efforts are being made by the command to ensure the victims are rescued,” he added.
