It was learnt that the gunmen made away with the victims through the forests at about 11pm but gunshots from the vigilantes forced them to allow about seven persons to escape.

But the pastor, his wife and children remained with the abductors.

It was observed that policemen from the Byzahin division and the Kubwa Area Command had visited the scene for preliminary findings and interrogated some of the victims.

The FCT authorities are yet to release a statement on the attack.
