Junaidu Danjuma, the son of the traditional ruler of Gwombe community, Gwargwada chiefdom in Kuje area council of Abuja, His Royal Highness (HRH) Danjuma Maji Jangaba, has been abducted by kidnappers.

Daily Trust had reported that 11 villagers, including the wife of PDP Vice Chairman, Mrs Asabe Mohammed Koriya, were abducted in the same area earlier this month.

A resident of Gwombe, simply identified as Salihu, said the incident happened around 5:23 pm when the kidnappers, wielding sophisticated weapons, barricaded the Gwargwada-Gwombe road.

He said the traditional ruler’s son was returning from a neighbouring village, Rubochi, on a motorcycle, when the kidnappers suddenly appeared on the road.

“It was upon sighting the kidnappers that the man who was conveying the chief’s son on a motorcycle attempted to escape, which made the kidnappers open fire and kill him instantly, while they whisked away the chief’s son,” he said.

The Agabe of Gwargwada-Ugbada, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Hussein Agabi Mam, confirmed the abduction of the son of Gwombe village chief in a telephone conversation with our reporter.

The spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, did not pick up calls or reply to a text message sent to her about the latest abduction.
