A female teacher with the Government Secondary School (GSS), Kuje, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mrs Daramola Onyeaka Matina, has been kidnapped and a N10 million ransom placed on her head.

A family member said Mrs Matina was kidnapped in the early hours of Tuesday at her residence in Shadadi community of Kuje Area Council.

He said the family had established contact with her abductors who demanded N10m before she would be set free.

The Kuje Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Comrade Shamaki Nathan Magaji, who confirmed the abduction, said the branch had written to the FCT NUT about the incident.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the FCT Police Command, ASP Maryam Yusuf, asked our reporter to send her a text message, but she was yet to reply as at the time of filing this report.
