Unknown gunmen have invaded the family residence of a former PDP National Chairman, Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu in his native Boto hometown, Tafawa Balewa local government area of Bauchi State, killing his 25-year-old nephew, Mu’azu Danladi, and kidnaped three other family members.
WikkiTimes gathered that the gunmen killed Danladi after they attacked the family residence of Mu’azu targeting his children or grandchildren on a visit to the community for Sallah celebrations but could not find any.
An eyewitness said Hajiya Asma’u Adamu, a sister to the former PDP Chairman, Malama Halima Abdullahi and One Nura were whisked to an unknown destination by the gunmen.
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.
Police Public Relations Officer Bauchi State Command who confirmed the incident said the police is working round the clock to rescue the abductees and bring the perpetrators to book.
