Barely four days after six persons at Darka village in Kuje Area Council were kidnapped by unknown gunmen, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, five more per­sons were at the weekend kidnapped in Huni-Gade, five kilometres away from Darka village.

The suspected herdsmen on Friday night, 18th No­vember, at about 1:30 am launched another attack at Huni Gade community five, kilometres away from Darka community kidnap­ping five more, taking the men to an unknown desti­nation, bringing the num­ber to 11 persons.

Confirming the devel­opment in a telephone interview, the Special As­sistant to the council chair­man said the incident has thrown the entire com­munity into fear as their daily life activities have been crippled following the overrunning of the entire community by the gun­men whose operation is yet to be halted by security agencies.

The council chairman Hon. Abdullahi Danladi Galadima has condemned the attack and appealed for calm as the council in col­laboration with FCT Min­ister are taking necessary steps to ensure the safe re­lease of those in captivity.

He said adequate secu­rity personnel, comprising the military, police, DSS and Anti-Kidnap Squad of the Police have been draft­ed to the affected areas.

However, there was no official statement from the FCT Police Command as the text messages sent to the PPRO was not an­swered at the time of filling this report
