There is tension on E1 Close, 7th Avenue in the FESTAC Town area of Lagos State after gunmen invaded the area and abducted two residents.
The victims are a 26-year-old married woman, Oluchi Jovita, and a 45-year-old man, Remigus Igwe.
The assailants, who were said to be four men in military uniform, went to the area in a speedboat around 10pm on Thursday.
It was also gathered that the gunmen, who also wore masks, dragged Jovita out of her apartment.
The abductors, who were said to have sneaked into E1 Close through an opening created in a fence, also brought out Igwe, who lived close to Jovita, and whisked away the two victims through a bush path.
