Suspected bandits in the early hours of Thursday abducted a Director of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) in the Federal Capital Territory.

The director, identified as Mr. Aondo Ver, was kidnapped from his home in Pambara Extension, Bwari Area Council, FCT.

Persecondnews gathered that Pambara is about 200 metres from the military base in the Bwari Area Council.

The bandits were reported to have shot indiscriminately, causing panic in the area, before escaping through the bushes with the abductee.

They were also reported to have attacked military personnel, both serving and retired, as well as civilians in the area.

The FCT, especially the Bwari Area Council and its environs, have been facing an alarming surge in insecurity, prompting growing concerns among residents and authorities.

Persecondnews reports that Mr. Ver’s abduction is coming barely one month after six sisters were abducted from the Abuja suburb of Bwari, along with their father, Alhaji Mansoor Al-Kadriyar.

The gunmen, who had reportedly demanded N60 million to free the remaining abductees, released their father to go and mobilize funds for the ransom.

Sadly, the kidnappers killed the eldest of the sisters, Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, a 400-level biological science student at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, because the ransom payment was late.

However, the remaining five sisters regained their freedom after spending two weeks in the kidnappers den.
