Gunmen Break Into FAAN Quarters In Kaduna, Abduct Family Members

Gunmen in the early hours of Saturday invaded the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) quarters in Kaduna and abducted 11 persons from two families.

Sources said the gunmen breached the security of the quarters through the perimeter fence.

Sources from the quarters disclosed that they heard gunshots throughout the morning as security agents engaged the gunmen, who later made away with their victims.

A pilot in the quarters disclosed that communities around the quarters have faced increasing security challenges, with abductions taking place frequently.

The pilot said this is the first time gunmen breached the FAAN property.

He said a member of staff of FAAN with his wife and four children were abducted, while five others were kidnapped from another family within the quarters.

“I can’t say whether they came on motorcycles or not, but we know that they came through the air perimeter fence.

“Right now there are security agents all over the area and we are trying to get all the details,” he said.
