Gunmen kidnap Federal Housing Authority director near military base in Abuja

A director at Federal Housing Authority, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Aondo Ver, has been reportedly kidnapped by gunmen suspected to be bandits in Abuja.

It was gathered that the incident happened at Pambara New Extension, which is about 200 metres away from the military camp and checkpoint in Bwari Central Area of FCT at about 12:30 am on Thursday.

The kidnappers were said to have gained access through the fence after cutting the barb wires, overpowering the local vigilante group in the area who attempted to rescue the victim with superior firearms.

In a related development, bandits who abducted seven residents of Kuduru, a neighbouring community of Bwari Area Council in Abuja, have demanded N290 million ransom to release the hostages.

The residents, including a pregnant woman, three children and three adults, who have spent one month and four days in captivity were abducted on December 28 at the Kuduru extension by the bandits.
