Reports state that suspected armed kidnappers have abducted a woman and her son from Yolde-Pate, a community in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The report on Wednesday said that armed kidnappers stormed Yolde-Pate, Adamawa on Monday night and operated for 30 minutes unhindered. They left with the woman and her son.
While identifying the victims as wife and son of a police officer, a source said to Daily Post, “They attacked the police officer’s house about 11.50 pm.”
The source said the attacked house is located close to the Federal Correctional Centre on the outer fringes of Yolde-Pate, adding that police operatives got to the scene after the attackers had gone.
“By the time the police came, the kidnappers had already made away with the wife and son of the police officer,” the source added. Also, noting that the said police officer was said to be away in Abuja on official duty.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, would not reveal names nor confirm that those abducted were relations of a police officer.
“The Commissioner of Police has ordered that those abducted be secured,” the PPRO merely said, advising members of the public always to furnish the police with useful information.
