A retired Assistant Comptroller-General of Immigration, identified as  Abdulahi Rakieu, and three others have been abducted in the Tungan Maje area of Gwagwalada, Federal Capital Territory.

The kidnappers were said to have raided the victims’ houses and whisked them away.

Newsnaija learned that the kidnappers reportedly gained access to the residence by breaking the wall and destroying the anti-burglar irons.

This happened a few hours after Okechukwu Nnodim,   a PUNCH journalist, was abducted by gunmen who invaded his residence in Kubwa last Wednesday alongside two siblings, known as  Gbenga and Victor Gbeyide.

Nnodim and the other victims were released on Saturday.

Newsnaija learned the men were reportedly tortured by their captors during the three days they spent in captivity.

However, ASP Mariam Yusuf,  the police spokesperson, confirmed the Tungan Maje incident on Sunday, noting that the operatives had launched a rescue operation for the victims.
