Gunmen raid FCT community, kidnap Punch reporter, 2 others




Gunmen on Wednesday abducted a PUNCH reporter, Okechukwu Nnodim, at his house in the Arab Road area of Kubwa, Abuja.

The kidnappers also attacked his neighbours and went away with the two sons of a widow, Mrs Faith Gbeyide.

Narrating the incident on Thursday, Nnodim’s wife, Oluchi, explained that her husband was working on his laptop when five strange men scaled the fence around 11pm and entered their compound, ordering them to open the door.

She said the gunmen fired several shots at the windows and subsequently pulled down the burglar-proof iron after which they forced the front door open.

“My husband asked me to stay with the children in their room. I heard the men asking him to bring out money but he told them he didn’t have money in the house.

“They took our phones and marched him out of the house. They went to our neighbour’s house and also abducted her two sons.”

Madam Gbeyide explained that her son opened the door when the men threatened to kill them if they refused.

She said, “They took the N9,000 in my purse, upturned the TV in the room and went away with my first son, Victor. My second son, Gbenga, started following them and they also took him away.”

The FCT police spokesperson, ASP Miriam Yusuf confirmed the incident. Punch
