Terrorists kidnap Nigerian Navy staff, injure him with machetes

Suspected terrorists have reportedly kidnapped a staff of the Nigerian Navy Headquarters, Abuja, identified as Musa Lawal.

This was confirmed by his wife, who narrated that one of her husband’s hands was cut with a machete and that he was taken away while bleeding.

Daily Post reports that Musa, who is mostly Abuja-based, was kidnapped in Lokoja at his residence, behind Post Flood Housing Estate, Lokoja at about 8pm on Monday.

The criminals burgled his apartment after they destroyed his doors and windows.

The Naval staff was to depart for his station on Tuesday morning before the unfortunate incident.

An hour after the kidnap, the kidnappers had called, demanding for N3million.

Same Monday was when SaharaReporters earlier reported that gunmen kidnapped the wife of the pastor in charge of the headquarters church, Evangelical Church of Winning All (ECWA) in Jos, Plateau State, confirming the rising spate of kidnapping across the country.

The incident occurred around 1:30am when the hoodlums invaded the church staff house in the Jos North Local Government Area of the state where Reverend Garba Andu Bawa and his family lived.
