Abductors kill Israeli during kidnap attempt in Abuja

ABUJA—An Israeli national (names withheld) was yesterday killed by suspected kidnappers at Wasa in Apo Mechanic village after he resisted his abduction.

This came on a day two members of an armed robbery gang that had been terrorizing residents of AMAC Estate, along Airport Road in Abuja in the last 4 months, met their waterloo during exchange of gun fire with the police.  The duo were killed, other members of the gang fled before they could be apprehended.

Eyewitness said the Isreali, a staff of Gilmor, a construction company, was on his way to the construction site at about 8:30pm when four young men suddenly forced his car to a stop, dragged him out and attempted to force him into their Toyota salon car.

While trying to resist the attempt, the kidnappers were said to have shot the Israeli, said to be between the ages of 30 and 35 years.

The Police is, however, on the trail of the kidnappers.

On the dead armed robbers, Vanguard learned that victims of the gang include journalists, medical doctors, traders and senior civil servants as well as church goers when returning from vigil service.

In one attack, the robbers shot a medical doctor in the face, thus disfiguring him for daring to question them.
