Last Saturday, suspected kidnappers shot a man identified as Anyinu and abducted his wife and daughter in Abaji area council of Abuja.
The incident reportedly occurred at Nuku Village off the road leading to Rubochi in the early hours of Saturday.
In Bayelsa, the six-year-old son of Nengi Talbot, the state commissioner for water resources, was kidnapped on December 2019.
A four-member gang had invaded the commissioner’s home around 11:30pm and whisked the victim, Antonio, away.
He was, however, rescued by a team of operatives of the operation Puff Adder on Wednesday.
