A three-year-old girl has been abducted by gunmen around the Second Gate axis of the Nigerian Army Barracks, along Ondo road, Akure in Ondo State.
It was gathered that the girl was kidnapped from her house around 8pm on Wednesday, shortly after arriving from a church programme with her mother.
According to Daily Post, the mother, Taiwo Fashina, explained that the kidnappers who were two in number and armed with a gun had trailed her home.
Fashina who said that the gunmen arrived in an unregistered Mercedes car after she had opened her gate, noted that the gunmen threatened to shoot her if she refused to hand over her car key.
She said “They asked me to lie on the ground so I could not look up, but faintly I saw one of them carrying something, but I just thought they were carrying a bag and I didn’t know whether it was my baby girl they carried.
“They used masks to cover their noses and mouths and asked me not to shout. They didn’t go in the car; they only went with the car key. I was calling; Mary, where are you? I then noticed that I didn’t see the girl; that was when I started shouting and people came around.”
