A neighbour simply identified as Zakari said the incident happened in the wee hours of Friday.
He said the kidnappers, who positioned themselves at strategic places, scaled the fence of the victim’s house.
“The other members of the gang jumped over the fence and entered the house,” he said.
He added, “They attempted whisking away the man’s wife, but they later spared her after discovering that she was nursing a baby,” he added.
When contacted, the spokesman of the FCT police command, ASP Daniel Y. Ndiparya, confirmed the kidnap incident, saying the command was making efforts to ensure the kidnapped victims are rescued alive.
“Yes, we are aware and efforts are being made by the command to rescue the victims,” he said.
