Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Wednesday, December 21, kidnapped Grace Oghene Edegware, a female National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, alongside two sisters in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Edegware and the two other women were said to be travelling on God is Good Motors when they were robbed at gun point and thereafter marched into the bush.
Head of Anti-Kidnapping Unit in Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FCT Police Command), Yemi Ola, has also confirmed the kidnap, adding that his office has received a report of the case. However, it has been gathered that the kidnappers have demanded N15m ransom from family of the victims. While they demanded N5m from the family of the two sisters, the kidnappers demanded N10m from the father of Grace Oghene Edegware, a graduate of Accountancy from Delta state Polytechnic, Ozoro, who was deployed by NYSC to Lagos state.
