Victim Narrates How Armed Robbers in Military Uniform Abducted, Ripped off Car in Abuja
Mr. Abdulquadri Sharafadeen a student, schooling at University of Abuja, with matrix number 19/408cscc/019, shared his bitter experience on how he was stopped by some men in Military uniform on Gwangwalada/Giri junction and ripped off car and other valuable properties.
According to the victim, “I was driving along Gwangwalada – Giri junction on Wednesday, 13th October, 2021 around 10pm to pick up my wife that was stranded at Giri motor bus stop, On getting to giri junction, there were men on army uniform to stop and search cars and before me were 2 cars and behind me 2 cars, before I knew it, they are disguised armed robbers/kidnappers in army uniform. They collected my car key and I was forced with gun inside the bush”
While inside the bush, “they Undressed me and give me new cloth to wear. Inside that bush I met 6 victims also begging for their life which they join me with. One of them who drove off my car called after 5minutes that my car has security and they should kill me if I didn’t give the security information, and I gave out the info. I tried to escape the first time, I was caught and thoroughly beaten up and tiled down with rope on both legs and hands. From their conversation, I heard, if the car owner has no one to pay 3m or 5m he should not be released (that’s me). That’s when I realized that they are not only robbers but also a kidnappers”
“I eventually gather my strength and make attempt to escape which was successful, I had to hide inside the bush for about 1½ hrs before I locate the main road and jumped over university of Abuja staff quarters fence and knock one of the apartment for assistance which they summon the security. The security of the quarters locked me up till morning while I explain myself but they did not trust my words untill morning after my wife came as a witness”
The case is in gwagwalada divisional police station.
“My Toyota Corolla, Car is Ash color, 2004 model with Chassis no: 1NXBR32E94Z233684 and Vehicle reg no: GWA823BD and other valuable things inside the car such as: international passport, money, documents”
