Also kidnapped in the midnight attack was one Olusola Agun.
The attackers were said to have been dressed in military uniform and broke into the two houses through the fence and window.
The attack is the latest in a growing trend across the FCT in which residents are abducted in incessant attacks.
Three days ago, kidnappers struck in Kubwa area of Abuja, abducting three persons including Okechukwu Nnodim, a journalist with Punch newspapers.
Twenty-four hours after the attack, the kidnappers contacted the journalist’s sister and asked for a ransom of N10 million.
