Gunmen Kidnap AEDC Official, Demand N10m Ransom

SOME unidentified gunmen have reportedly abducted an official of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, Mr. Adamu Usman, in the Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

Findings by Northern City News revealed that the incident occurred at about 5.30pm on Sunday along Akgwanga-Keffi Abuja Road.

It was gathered that the kidnappers had contacted the victim’s family and demanded N10m ransom.

A source told our correspondent on Tuesday that the AEDC worker was returning from an official assignment in Keffi when he was abducted alongside other victims and taken into the surrounding bush.

Usman’s car was said to have been abandoned on the scene.

The source said, “Usman and the other victims ran into the hoodlums who opened fire on them; they were forced to stop and made to lie down on the road before they were abducted.”

It was gathered that the incident happened at Mandara where five policemen were ambushed and two were murdered by gunmen last Friday.

Confirming the incident to Northern City News, the state Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Kennedy Idrisu, said the command had since commenced investigation into the incident.
