A driver and conductor have been abducted by bandits in Abuja.
A resident of Chida community, Dangana Musa narrated that the conductor and his driver were abducted in the latest attack, which occurred on Thursday evening, according to DailyTrust.
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,” Musa said.
Spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, is yet to issue a statement on the kidnap.
