Gunmen have attacked and abducted a woman, Mrs. Joy Deke, in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.
The woman was kidnapped around the Catholic Papal Ground, opposite Federal Housing Estate, Kubwa, Abuja, at about 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
Mrs. Deke, a mother of four, who lives at Kaniz Estate, was said to be driving in a Toyota Venza car back to their house from Kubwa Federal Housing Estate with her daughter in the city centre.
It was gathered that the gunmen who shot at the tyre of the car and demobilized it ordered her daughter to lie down while they made away with her mother and mobile phone.

He added that the police had taken the vehicle to the station.
As of the time of filing this report, the woman’s mobile phone was switched off while the gunmen had yet to establish contact with her family.
