Gunmen abduct Benue Commissioner’s wife
Mrs. Ann Unenge, wife of Benue Commissioner for Lands and Survey has been abducted in Makurdi Benue state capital.
She was kidnapped around 6:pm on Thursday, July 29.
A relation of the commissioner told The Nation that Mrs Ann was abducted shortly after she returned from Daudu town, an outskirt where she went to visit her parents.
She was said to be driving a new model Toyota Highlander, which her abductors also took away.
The publication adds that there was a struggle between the abductors and Mrs Ann Unenge at the B. Division traffic junction when she attempted to forcefully open the car door to escape.
The gunmen reportedly shot into the air at the junction to scare away passersby before driving away with their victim, who was shouting for help.
