Bandits abducted three women in Anguwar Tudun Fulani in Yangoji village, Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory.
The incident happened on Sunday night barely two months after bandits invaded the area and abducted the wife and three children of the herders’ chief.
The three abducted women were named as Hauwa Musa, Zainab Musa and Sa’adatu Adamu.
According to Daily Trust, the Mai-Anguwa of Tudun Fulani, Alhaji Aliyu Abubakar, who confirmed the latest abduction, said the bandits came around 11pm and started shooting before moving out the three women.
Abubakar explained that the bandits shattered the windows and front door of one of the houses and whisked away two of the women.
“After that, they moved to the next house and abducted another woman before leaving the community,” he said.
The husbands of the abducted women were said to have travelled out of the community when the incident happened.
The mai-anguwa, who was visibly disturbed, said the latest attack was the third in the area since January this year, adding that some of his kinsmen have been relocating from the community.
“I have summoned several meetings to see how we can engage the services of vigilantes, but my people are not cooperating,” he further said.
The FCT Police spokeswoman, DSP Adeh Josephine, could not be reached to comment on the latest kidnap incident.
