Unknown gunmen abducted 19 individuals from their homes in the Galadimawa area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, with tragic consequences. Among the victims was Barrister Chris Agidy, the Senior Legislative Aide to Senator Ned Nwoko, who represents Delta North.

Approximately two weeks ago, Senator Ned Nwoko received distressing news about the incident. Swift action was taken as he immediately contacted the Commissioner of Police, prompting the activation of the OC Anti-Kidnapping team. Sadly, updates from credible police sources indicate that 12 of the kidnapped individuals have lost their lives, while the remaining seven are still being held captive.

In a statement released by the media office of Senator Ned Nwoko on Wednesday, the gravity of the situation in Galadimawa, Abuja, was emphasized. The senator and his team expressed profound concern and conveyed their heavy hearts regarding the unfortunate kidnapping incident. They assured that every possible effort is being made to secure the release of the remaining captives.

Unfortunately, we have received disheartening updates from reliable police sources, confirming that, out of the 19 individuals who were abducted, 12 have tragically lost their lives. The remaining seven are still in the custody of the kidnappers, and ongoing efforts are being made to determine the well-being and status of our staff, Barrister Chris, among those still held.

Since the beginning of this ordeal, the Senator has maintained close coordination with security operatives who are actively engaged in addressing the situation. However, challenges persist, particularly in establishing communication with the kidnappers for negotiation purposes. The statement highlights the significant difficulty in reaching the kidnappers, as their lines remain inactive, impeding direct communication and negotiation efforts.

According to information provided by security operatives, their primary focus is on securing the release of the individuals still held captive. The location is a forested area approximately 100 kilometers away from Abuja, and despite the formidable challenges faced in reaching the kidnappers, efforts are concentrated on achieving a positive resolution.

The statement underscores the commitment to a swift and safe resolution to this distressing situation while expressing solidarity with the affected families. Special mention is made of Barrister Chris’s family, with whom close contact is being maintained during this challenging period. As updates are awaited from the authorities, thoughts and prayers remain with all those impacted by this unfortunate event.
