Gunmen Invade Abuja Gwarimpa Estate, Abduct Residents

Gunmen suspected to be terrorists in the early hours of Monday attacked Gwarinpa Estate in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Sources confirmed that the gunmen operated on the estate between 1am and 4am and abducted a yet-to-be-identified number of residents.

The Gwarinpa Housing Estate in the district is said to be the biggest housing estate in Africa. It was built by the Administration of General Sani Abacha and is the largest of its kind in Africa.

Although details of the attack remain sketchy, a resident, who simply identified himself as Mohammed  said the gunmen gained access to Genuine Estate after Efab Queens on 6th Avenue, Gwarinpa.

Mohammed explained to our correspondent on the telephone that the hoodlums were armed with bows, arrows, guns and machetes and were in large numbers.

When contacted, the Spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Josephine Adeh, told Daily Trust that the case was a robbery case not a kidnapping case.

Adeh, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the police had already been mobilised to the scene to ascertain how the incident happened.

She promised that the public would be duly notified after details of the incident had been ascertained.
