Two persons have been abducted after suspected bandits attacked a farm located in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Thursday evening, July 28.


DailyTrust reports that a resident of Chida community located in Kwali, Dangana Musa, said the two persons, a driver alongside his conductor were abducted in the latest attack.

He said the driver identified as Atazamu Azaki and his conductor, Ayuba John, went to load charcoal at the farm in the area when the bandits broke in and abducted them.


The eyewitness added that 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.
