Gunmen Abduct Pastor’s Wife, teenage daughters
Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a woman and two of her daughters in Abuja.
The victims, a 41-year-old woman, identified as Mrs. Oladapo, and her two teenage daughters, Moyo Oladapo, 17-yeard-old, and Glory Oladapo, 14, were said to have been abducted around 1:04 am on Sunday, September 5.
The abduction was reported to have happened at Pegi community in Kuje area council of Abuja.
The victims are known to be Pastor Gabriel Oladapo’s wife and children, and the pastor was out of Abuja when the kidnappers struck.
A resident simply identified as Abednego told Daily Trust that 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.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the FCT Police Command, ASP Daniel Y Ndipraya, said there is an ongoing investigation, and all plans are being made to rescue the victims.
“Efforts are being made by the command to ensure the victims are rescued.” he added.
