Gunmen on Saturday invaded a Fulani settlement at Rubochi in Kuje Area Council of the FCT, shot one person on the leg and abducted two boys.
A resident of the area simply identified as Suleiman told our reporter that, “The Fulani camp is just a few metres away from the Rubochi Police Station, and as the gunmen were shooting, the police responded by shooting into the air to scare them. But even with that, they succeeded in whisking away two boys.”
