Commotion As Bandits Kidnap Director Near Military Base In Abuja

On Thursday, bandits kidnapped Aondo Ver, a director in the Federal Housing Authority in the Federal Capital Territory. The incident occurred during an attack approximately 200 meters from a military base in Pambara, Bwari Area Council of Abuja, according to an exclusive report by The PUNCH.

The bandits who struck around 12.30am on Thursday, shot indiscriminately, causing panic in the area, before escaping through the bushes with the abductee.

Residents who confirmed the development to our correspondent on Thursday revealed that military personnel were stationed at a military base popularly known as ‘camp’, which is about 200 metres away from where the director was abducted in Pambara Extension.

They further noted that residents of the area that were attacked by bandits, include military personnel, both serving and retired, and civilians.

A source said, “Bandits attacked Pambara Extension over the night, at about 12:30 am today (Thursday), and they abducted one of our neighbours, Mr Aondo Ver, who is a Director in Federal Housing Authority, FCT.

“The attack happened very close to a ‘camp,’ the military base at the entrance of Bwari very close to Pambara Extension. The part of Pambara Extension where Mr Ver was kidnapped is just about 200 metres away from the military base. But the kidnappers escaped through the bushes with the victim.”

Another resident added,
“The attack is still shocking to us. Our estate is very close to the military base here known as ‘camp’ at the entrance of Bwari, and there are also serving and retired military personnel living with us here, yet these bandits were bold enough to attack this place and kidnap Mr Ver.”

The FCT is facing alarming surge in insecurity, prompting growing concerns among residents and authorities.

The PUNCH correspondent could not reach the spokesperson for the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, as text messages and phone calls to his line were not answered.

Also, the spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Josephine Adeh, could not be reached for comments as of press time.
