A resident of Boto, Hashimu Abubakar, said that at the moment, the gunmen have not contacted the family to negotiate a ransom for the release of the abductees, adding that all phones of the abductees were switched off.

“The gunmen came around 1 am and went straight to the house where my brother used to sleep. They broke the gate and started asking him where the ex-governors children or grandchildren were? They searched the house but couldn’t find anyone, that was how they shot him in the head and abducted three family members,” he said.
