Gunmen on Wednesday attacked vehicles along the busy Akwanga-Keffi expressway, kidnapping four women in the process.
Chairman of Correspondents’ Chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists in Nasarawa State, Suleiman Abubakar’s wife, Yahanasu Abubakar, was among those kidnapped.
Mr Suleiman told newsmen that the incident happened around 7:00pm along Gudi-Garaku road in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, the gunmen shot at the union bus they were travelling in from Keffi, where his wife had gone to register at the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, orientation camp.
He said the bus ran into a ditch after it was shot at which gave the gunmen the opportunity to abduct his wife, the wife of a former Assembly member, who was also on the bus as well as two other women from another vehicle.
Samaila Usman, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, said the command had mobilised officers to the area to search and rescue the abducted women.
