Gunmen abduct PDP Vice Chairman’s wife in Abuja

Wife of the Peoples Democratic Party Vice Chairman in Gwargwada Ward, Kuje Area Council, Mrs Asabe Mohammed Koriya has been abducted by gunmen.

Koriya was abducted on Friday February 4, at about 5 pm, along Gwargwada-Gwombe junction near Rubochi community.

The PDP Vice Chairman’s wife and 10 others who were abducted, were returning to Gwombe and Pesu villages after attending a political function at the neighbouring Gwargwada village.

A relation of one of the victims, Salihu Ibrahim said the gunmen were over 30 in number and armed with guns, barricaded the road with logs of wood. They flagged down motorcycles and whisked the victims into the bush.

He said;

“But two other persons who were on a motorcycle escaped. Upon sighting the kidnappers, they abandoned the motorcycle and fled into the bush but the kidnappers set the motorcycle ablaze.”

The Agabe of Gwargwada-Ugbada, Alhaji Hussaini Agabi Mam, confirmed the abduction of 11 people, including the wife of the PDP ward chairman of the area.

He said;

“Three of the victims are from my place, four from Pesu while the remaining victims are from the neighbouring Gwombe village.”

The abductors were said to have demanded N25 million ransoms before the victims will be set free. The monarch confirmed this in his palace yesterday, saying the kidnappers called at about 9 am on Monday February 7, to inform them that the victims are in their custody.

The monarch added that a relative of one of the victims told the kidnappers that no one among the victims can afford N100,000 not to talk of raising a million naira. He said the kidnappers had since stopped picking calls.
