KIDNAPPERS ON RAMPAGE IN ABUJA

Written by on February 8, 2021

RESIDENTS OF THE FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY (FCT), ABUJA, HAVE RAISED THE ALARM OVER RISING CASES OF COORDINATED KIDNAPPINGS IN THE TERRITORY, DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF OVER 15 SECURITY-RELATED AGENCIES.

MANY RESIDENTS WHO SPOKE TO NEWSMEN ON THE RISING CASES, ALSO WONDERED WHY THE FCT ADMINISTRATION HAS NOT SUMMONED A TOWN HALL MEETING TO LIAISE WITH COMMUNITY LEADERS, ESTATE OWNERS AND VARIOUS VIGILANTE GROUPS ON HOW TO TACKLE THE MENACE.

THEY ARGUED THAT THE FCT HAS THE NOMENCLATURE OF A STATE AND CALLED ON THE TWO FCT MINISTERS TO RISE UP TO THE OCCASION OR BE BOOTED OUT BY PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI. THEY ALSO WONDERED WHY PRESIDENT BUHARI HAS NOT GIVEN MARCHING ORDERS TO THE VARIOUS SECURITY AGENTS TO GO AFTER BANDITS AND OTHER CRIMINALS OPERATING IN THE TERRITORY.

IN RECENT WEEKS, OVER 50 PERSONS HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED IN ABUJA, ACCORDING TO SECURITY SOURCES. SECURITY SOURCES LISTED KUJE, KUBWA, BWARI, APO/LOKOGOMA, GWARINPA AND SOME UNDISCLOSED PARTS OF THE METROPOLIS AS EPICENTRES OF ABDUCTIONS.

THE SECURITY SOURCE EXPLAINED THE NEW MODUS OPERANDI OF THE KIDNAPPERS. HE SAID UNLIKE IN THE PAST, HOMES OF THE VICTIMS ARE NOW ATTACKED, WITH SPORADIC GUNSHOTS TO SCARE OFF PEOPLE.

THE SOURCE SAID THE VICTIMS ARE THEREAFTER MARCHED INTO A NEARBY BUSH OR SURROUNDING MOUNTAINS.
