Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers, on Saturday night, stormed Dukku local government area of Gombe State and abducted two persons.

The abductees were a man and a woman and were whisked away by the gunmen at midnight of Saturday when they raided Shabewa village in Dukku LGA, shooting sporadically into the air.

Alhaji Sambo Umar Shabewa, a resident of the area, who spoke with journalists on Sunday, revealed that his wife, Amina Usman Aliyu, and his younger brother, one Alhaji Mustapha Umar Shabewa, were taken away by the kidnappers.

He said the kidnappers burgled his house and allegedly targeted him for abduction, but having realised that he was not around, they went away with his wife and his brother.

He called on the authorities to help rescue the victims and protect the lives of the people of the community.

Gombe State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mahid Muazu Abubakar, confirmed the incident and said that they were on top of the situation.

“We have confirmed the abduction of two persons from the Shabewa Community of Dukku. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police has directed the Operational Unit of Dukku Division and Anti-Kidnapping of the Command to ensure the victims are rescued unhurt,” he stated.
