A staff of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) Akwanga Area office in Nasarawa State, Adamu Usman, was on Sunday late evening abducted by unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers along Akwanga- Keffi-Abuja highway.
An eye-witness who disclosed this to LEADERSHIP, said the AEDC staff was returning from Keffi, where he went for official assignment and was kidnapped at about 5.30pm.
The source said Adamu and other victims ran into the hoodlums who opened fire on them forcing them to stop and were later made to lye face down.

When contacted police spokesman in the state, Kennedy Idrisu, who confirmed the incident said the police was still investigating the matter.
