Barely 24 hours after three sisters of the same family in the Eteh-Okofi village of Kogi local government of Kogi State were abducted by unknown gunmen, five members of the same family in Adabode-Sabo community in the same local government have been kidnapped.

The ugly incident happened in the early hours of Wednesday when the heavily armed gunmen stormed Adabode-Sabo village in the same LGA to carry out their evil agenda.

A family member, who craved anonymity, gave the names of the abducted people as Ahmed Idris, Habitat Shuaibu, Hauwa Smaila, Maryam Mikhail and Abdulhamid Abubakar.

He said the gunmen, who came through the bush, invaded the house through the back door and whisked away the victims at gunpoint.

“Although, they didn’t shoot as they carried out the operation quietly because of the security men at the main gate of Koton-Karfe prisons service [custodial centre] which is just some few metres away from the village,” he said.

He said family members had yet to establish contact with the kidnappers, even as he said the entire family of the victims was devasted over the incident.

The Chairman of Kogi Local Government Area of Kogi State, Alhaji Isah Abdulkarim, confirmed the latest kidnap incident, saying relevant security agencies in the area have been alerted.

It would be recalled that a gang of gunmen invaded a family house at Eteh-Okofi in the same KotonKarffe LGA and abducted three sisters on Tuesday morning.

They have made contact with the family of the victims and demanded payment of N100 million ransom.
