Eight women has been reportedly abducted by gunmen on a farm in Gwombe village, Gwargwada Chiefdom in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The incident happened barely 48 hours after gunmen abducted the father of the vice chairman of Kwali Area Council of the FCT, alongside six others, in Yewuti village.
A resident of Gwargwada, Usman Yakubu, said the incident happened around 5pm on Monday, November 20, 2023.
He said the women, all housewives, were harvesting benni seed when the gunmen wielding AK-47 rifles appeared and surrounded them
A chief from a village in the chiefdom, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the abduction to Daily Trust.
He said “In fact, four among the women are from one house,”
“I suspect that these gunmen that abducted our women are among those ones that escaped from neighbouring Kabbi village who were roaming inside the bush after Miyetti Allah vigilantes neutralised some of them over the weekend,” he added.
