On Thursday night, unidentified gunmen attacked Hilltop Phase 2 Extension of the Nigerian Army Post-Housing Estate, kidnapping a well-known businesswoman.
It was gathered that the heavily armed men invaded the area around 9 pm, shooting sporadically to scare residents, according to Daily Post.
It was gathered that despite the presence of soldiers in the estate, the kidnappers went away with the woman through the hillside.
A source told our reporter that the kidnappers had targeted the victim’s husband but missed him by a whisker.
The source said, “Yesterday at about 9 pm, some kidnappers entered this estate and kidnapped a woman at the Hilltop.
“The target was the husband but they couldn’t get him as he was not around but unfortunately, as the woman was driving into her compound, they got her.
“As her son started shouting, they too started shooting.
They went away with her through the hillside.
Soldiers have been deployed to trace them; hopefully they will be apprehended. The CCTV in the house captured them.”
