Gunmen attack Abuja community, abduct residents

Gunmen raided Tungan Maje, a suburb of Abuja, early Thursday, abducting an unspecified number of residents, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

One resident said at least 20 people were kidnapped after prolonged shooting in the community that lies near Zuba. This figure could not be immediately confirmed.

The police spokesperson for the federal capital territory, Anjugur Manzah, told PREMIUM TIMES he was working on a statement on the incident.

He did not confirm the number of those kidnapped, or whether there are casualties.

A resident of the area who would not be named for security reasons said heavy shooting started in the community at about 12.15a.m. and lasted more than an hour.

He said members of the local vigilante group were overwhelmed.

“We didn’t sleep throughout the night. It’s this morning that the vigilantes told us about 20 people were abducted,” he said.

The attack is coming weeks after reports suggested that members of the extremist group, Boko Haram, had infiltrated the federal capital.

Police have confirmed the attack, saying 10 people were kidnapped and five rescued.

It’s clear for everyone to see the dullard has been run ragged by the same security, corruption and economy he and his zombies campaigned on.

Nigeria is on the verge of extinction under this useless dullard. If Abuja is not safe, then where in Nigeria is safe?

Now that they have started coming into big cities, maybe this incompetent Government will start listening to people's cries, cause it can easily be any of them this time arround.
Meanwhile their useless Dss is no where to be found where you need them Most.

I think the information by the NCS is very accurate.

Unfortunately, the people at the top have waived it aside because they have orderlies who are constantly guiding them.

Incompetent elements.
