Air Commodore Johnson critically injured by Abuja hoodlums while jogging

Air Commodore Akin Johnson nearly killed in Abuja while jogging

An early morning jogging today in Abuja by Air Commodore Akin Johnson rtd almost led to his death.

Johnson, a pilot, was attacked and badly wounded by hoodlums while jogging near his residence in the Lugbe area of Abuja.

He was bloodied in the attack, with the hoodlums leaving him in a critical condition.

His wife has now told relations that his condition is stable.

In a social media message, widely shared, she advised everyone in the habit of embarking on early morning jogging, to be security conscious.

“Please be careful when you go out to jog/walk.

“Avoid doing it very early. Make sure it is daylight and people are on the streets before embarking on a jog/walk”.

Abuja, Nigeria’s capital has been facing problems of insecurity, with kidnappers and bandits attacking people in the suburbs.

On Tuesday, FCT Police Command arrested 11 suspected kidnappers operating along Kwaita-Kwali, Kuje, Bwari and Karshi axis.


  1. Too many unemployed people with no one to turn to for a single meal or shelter can create insecurity in any town or city.

    The need to decentralize developments is paramount to reduce urban migration leading to overpopulation on cities like Lagos, Abuja and port Harcourt etc.

    Insecurity can be tackled in more than one way.

    Please let us be patriotic about solving this problem and not always play politics, tell lies with reality.

    Otherwise, we all will eventually become a victim in one way or another.

    I rest my case.
