The federal capital territory, FCT, police command in Nigeria has debunked reports of the kidnapping of residents in an Abuja estate.
According to reports, bandits kidnapped some residents of Genuine Estate in the Gwarimpa area of Abuja.
The bandits, armed with bows, arrows, and machetes, were said to have invaded the estate in large numbers between 1am and 4am.
It was said that the assailants abducted an unknown number of residents.
Josephine Adeh, FCT police spokesperson, however, told newsmen that there was no incident at the Gwarimpa estate.
“Nothing happened in the Gwarinpa estate. The only incident that occurred was a burglary at Queens Efab Estate, Galadima at around 3am,” she said.
“The police received the distress call and responded to it. No one was kidnapped. All the laptops, phones and gadgets that were stolen have been recovered by the police. There was no attack or kidnap at the Gwarimpa estate.”
Gunmen attacked St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state, less than 24 hours ago.
On Sunday, the church was attacked during a service. The gunmen allegedly detonated explosives before opening fire on the congregation. Many worshippers were killed in the attack, including children and women.
According to President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, only demons from the underworld could have planned and carried out the attack.
Buhari expressed his condolences to the deceased’s families, the Ondo state government, and the Catholic community.
“No matter what, this country shall never give in to evil and wicked people, and darkness will never overcome light. Nigeria will eventually win,” the statement reads.
