Eleven persons have been abducted from an orphanage in the Federal Capital Territory.
The abductees, all said to be orphans at Rachael’s Orphanage Home in Naharati, Abaji Area Council, were kidnapped on Saturday, Jan 23.
The kidnappers, who arrived in large numbers with sophisticated weapons, also robbed the security guard of the orphanage alongside his two wives.
They reportedly made their way in forcefully and went into the rooms of the orphans, and took 11 of them away at gunpoint.
The police has vowed to rescue those abducted and bring their kidnappers to justice.
Police spokesperson Yusuf Mariam said: “We have launched strategic operations to rescue them and arrest the perpetrators.”
