Kidnappers Invade Nigeria Post Army Estate in Abuja, Abduct Two

Kidnappers invaded the Phase 2 area of the Nigeria Post Army estate in Abuja on Thursday night, leaving residents in shock and fear. As reported, the incident occurred around 10:00 p.m. and targeted the residence of Barrister Cyril Adikwu, resulting in the abduction of his wife and one of his in-laws.

Eyewitnesses reported that the assailants, armed and masked, stormed the estate with gunfire, causing panic among the residents. 

A neighbour of the victims recounted the harrowing events, stating, “It all started at about 10:00. We suddenly started hearing gunshots, and immediately we knew something was wrong. I quickly went out to make sure my gate was well locked.”

The kidnappers specifically targeted Barrister Adikwu’s residence, where they forcefully entered and took his wife and in-laws. 

Fortunately, Barrister Adikwu managed to escape the assailants.

 “Then we heard the gunshot in the barrister’s house, and then we alerted the estate’s management, who immediately swung into action. In a short time, army personnel came around and started shooting too, but before they arrived, the kidnappers had taken the wife and one of the in-laws of the barrister,” a neighbour noted.

The incident has left the community traumatized, with residents expressing concerns about their safety.  One of the residents highlighted the lingering fear, stating, “This is traumatizing because we could not sleep throughout the night due to fear of the kidnappers coming back.”

The incident underscores the urgent need for concerted efforts to curb the menace of kidnapping and ensure the safety of citizens across the nation.
