Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers reportedly killed a vigilante member and abducted a Department of State Services, DSS, operative during an attack on residents of Abaji in Abaji Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Afriupdate News gathered that the incident occurred on Saturday overnight.
According to report, the armed men were said to have invaded the community in their numbers and attacked a DSS outpost in the area.
During the exchange of gunshots with the DSS operatives, the gunmen successfully kidnapped a DSS operative.
It could not be confirm if the gang had demanded a ransom for the abducted officer.
The FCT police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, said she did not have information on the incident and referred inquiries to the DSS.
But the spokesman to the secret police, Peter Afunanya, had yet to respond to inquiries as of the time of filing this report.
Abaji has reportedly become notorious for criminal activities, including abductions of residents and travellers on the Abuja-Lokoja highway.
