Protest in Kuje as gunmen kidnap five children


The Elders Council of Yoruba Community in Abuja has staged a protest following the kidnap of five children of the chairman of Yoruba community in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory.

The children were kidnapped a fortnight ago.

Chairman of the community Wale Adesina led the organisation to a protest in Abuja on Saturday but did not disclose the names of the victims to journalists.

According to him, the organisation had reported to the police and would donate money to assist the distraught family of the victims in whatever capacity they could.

Adesina said, “We are here because of the recent happening in Abuja concerning our members. The five children of our chairman in Kuje area council were kidnapped on November 17 in the night.

“It is now two weeks and four days. We had to discuss how to raise some money to assist the family. Secondly, we are here to review our situation because we do not have a standing constitution.”
