Barely 24 hours after bandits abducted a couple, Mr and Mrs Sunday Odoma Ojarume, from Sheda village in Kwali Area Council of the FCT on Sunday, the wife and three children of the Ardon Fulani in the council, Alhaji Adamu Garba Ardo, have also been abducted.

The senior wife of the Ardon Fulani, Khadijat Adamu, confirmed the incident to our reporter on Tuesday, giving the names of the victims as Habiba Adamu (wife), Hafsat Adamu, Fatima Adamu and Abubakar Adamu (children).

She said the incident happened around 12am on Tuesday when the bandits in their numbers wielding sophisticated weapons invaded Anguwar Tudan Fulani at Yangoji village in Kwali Area Council.

She said the bandits gained access into the house through the kitchen back door and whisked her away alonside her second including the three children at gun point.

She explained that, “The bandits forced their way into our house. Our husband was not around as he went to Kogi State to inspect his cattle.  They ransacked the house and later took my core wife and three of the children and went away. Contact is yet to be established with the bandits.”

Daily Trust gathered that the abduction of the Ardon Fulani’s wife was the second time, because she was abducted in February this year but was rescued by vigilantes.

The spokesperson of the FCT Police Command, DSP Adeh Josephine, was yet to reply an SMS about the incident.
