BREAKING:Gunmen kidnap Police Inspector, others in Abuja

unknown gunmen has reportedly kidnapped Police Inspector and two others in Rubochi community in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

It was gathered the persons were kidnapped around midnight on Sunday, by gunmen who stormed the community shooting sporadically.

In the same community, the younger brother to a former Chairman of Kuje Area Council, identified as Mohammed Galadima, was also abducted just a couple of days earlier.

A source who did not want to be named said the incident happened early around 2am on Friday, as the gunmen gained access to Galadima’s compound by jumping over the fence and picking him right in his house.

It was gathered the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N10 million.

When contacted, the deputy spokesperson, Federal Capital Territory Police Command, ASP Mariam Yusuf, said she would get back to our reporter when she gets details.

The seeming worsening state of insecurity situation has heightened the feeling of apprehension in the FCT.

Meanwhile, Newsflash247 had earlier reported that the Area Commander, Suleja Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force, Mr. Isa Rambo, has been kidnapped by gunmen around Kaduna.

A senior police officer told our correspondent that Rambo, who is an Assistant Commissioner of Police, was kidnapped on his way to Jos on Saturday evening.

The senior officer said, “He was kidnapped around Kaduna and was on his way to Jos along with his driver when they were attacked and whisked away. The kidnappers have made contact with us and are demanding a ransom of N50m.”

The victim is the second senior police officer to be abducted in the last three months.

In August, a Divisional Police Officer in Delta State identified as Okoro was abducted and released after a ransom of N3m was paid but the police denied the incident.
