A 45 year-old woman, Mrs Oladapo Bukola, and two of her daughters have been abducted at Pegi community in Kuje area council of Abuja.
The woman’s daughters were identified as Moyo Oladapo, 17 years old, and Glory Oladapo, 14 years old.
A resident simply identified as Abednego, said the incident happened around 1:04 am on Sunday.
He said the kidnappers, wielding AK-47 rifles, attacked the victims’ house at a resettlement area in Zone A, hill top in the community.
He said the kidnappers scaled the fence of the victims house and forced the doors open
