Bandits, on Thursday, reportedly abducted 23 residents of Kawu community in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.
Councilor representing the area, Abdulmumini Zakari, who confirmed the abduction, said the gunmen stormed the community from the Kuyeri Forest in Kaduna State and divided themselves into groups.
He said some went into the palace of the district head, Alhaji Abdurrahman Danjuma Ali, where they abducted his son, Lukman, and his wife, who he married two weeks ago.
“Others attacked the compound of Alhaji Alhassan Sidi Kawu, the Marafa of Kawu and a former PDP Chairman of Kawu Ward,” he said.
According to him, the bandits abducted the former PDP chairman along with his four children, adding that the bandits thereafter went into the compound of Sarkin Pawan Kawu, Gambo Pawa, and abducted him, alongside his two wives and children.
