Politicians, Others Abandon Their Houses as Kidnappers Lay Siege to Abuja Community

Kidnappers have forced residents of Abaji Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to abandon their homes.


Following incessant cases of kidnappings in Abaji Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), many residents have abandoned their homes. 


Daily Trust reports that after abducting a top civil servant on Thursday, the gunmen raided a Fulani settlement at Kekeshi, still in Abaji. After the incident, retired civil servants and some politicians were forced to relocate from the community. 

A resident of Anguwar Hausawa, Ibrahim Saleh, said he decided to move his family to Abaji town because of fear of them being kidnapped. 

The petty trader said he stays in the town to make end meet and goes back to his house during the day time. 

He said: “You know Anguwar Hausawa has suffered several attacks by kidnappers. And you can also remember that the recent one was the one that two of the kidnappers were killed and yet, they still abducted four residents who are still being held captive.” 

Also, a teacher identified as Mrs Christiana said she could not cope and had to relocate. 

She said: “Even though, the attack was carried out at the senior staff quarters, the sound of their guns that night alone can cause high blood pressure. Hence, I had to relocate.”
