A neighbour, Austine John, who narrated the incident to journalists, stated that the kidnappers entered the estate, shooting sporadically, and abducted the two while the Adikwu managed to escape.
John notes, “It all started at about 10:00. We suddenly started hearing gunshots, and immediately we knew something was wrong. I quickly went out to make sure my gate was well locked.
“Then we heard the gunshot in the barrister’s house, and then we alerted the estate’s management, who immediately swung into action. In a short time, army people came around and started shooting too, but before they came, the kidnappers had taken the wife and one of the in-laws of the barrister.
“This is really traumatising because we could not sleep throughout the night due to fear of the kidnappers coming back. President Tinubu should please help Nigerians put an end to this barbaric act by the kidnappers.”
The Federal Capital Territory Police Command was yet to make an official comment concerning the development as of press time.
This is coming barely after the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, said the Federal government would not condone any form of bandit attack in Abuja
