While the man’s wife and the child were released after walking some few meters away from their house, the husband is still said to still be with the abductors.
But the victim’s wife later confirmed the incident, narrating how gunmen broke into their residence around 11pm on Friday.
She said the armed kidnappers scaled over the fence to gain entry into the house.
She said some of them surrounded the house while others who got in destroyed the burglary of their windows from where they entered into the room.
“They first went to the first flat where my younger sister was sleeping and destroyed the door, but luckily they couldn’t see her where she was hiding. They now came to the main flat where my husband and I were and took us away,” she said.
She said while they were being taken away, after walking some few meters away from house, the kidnappers told her to go back since she was breastfeeding a child.
Attempts to make Adeh react to the woman’s claim did not yield results as she neither answered calls nor replied a text message sent afterwards.
