SaharaReporters gathered that an aged man was also killed by the gunmen who robbed the travellers of their possessions after forcibly stopping vehicles at high speed. 

The FCT has been recording high cases of abductions recently.

In February, 2021, a PUNCH journalist, Okechukwu Nnodim, was abducted in his house in the Arab road area of Kubwa, Abuja.

The kidnappers also attacked his neighbours and went away with the two sons of a widow, Mrs Faith Gbeyide.
