Two sons of a scrap dealer identified as Mr Lukman Aliyu, have been abducted by gunmen in Aseyori community, Alagbado area of Kwara State.
Daily Trust reported that over six hoodlums invaded the residence of the victims around 12 midnight and shot sporadically before abducting the minors.
Mr Aliyu and his wife, Sarat, who confirmed the incident gave the names of their children who were abducted as Quadir, 15, and Muideen, 12.
“I don’t even know how I survived because they came raining bullets on the house. I hid my wife and five children in one of the rooms and ran elsewhere but they used cutlass and axes to destroy the door beneath to gain entrance. They took two of the children and hit my wife on the chest terribly in the process.
“They took away four phones and have contacted us demanding 20 million naira ransom. This is the third kidnapping incident in weeks in the area and residents have abandoned their properties for fear of being kidnapped.”
