Residents of Pegi village in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory FCT Abuja were on Wednesday night thrown into confusion following the invasion of their village by gunmen and the consequent abduction of a yet-to-be-identified man.

It was gathered that the gunmen who were dressed in black fired sporadic shots at a Volkswagen saloon car, wounding the occupants and abducting one of them.

Chairman of Pegi Community Development Association PECDA, Mr. Taiwo Aderibigbe confirmed the incident, noting that it occurred at about 8:10pm.

According to him, security operatives had since taken over the road.

This is the second time a community within the FCT will be attacked by hoodlums within a month.

Recently, Tonji-maji, a community close to Zubair was attacked with more than 10 residents kidnapped.

An unspecified amount of money was later paid by the community to secure the release of their loved ones.
