Abdulmumuni Ningi, a former member of the Bauchi State House of Assembly has been abducted by some yet to be identified gunmen.
The development was confirmed to newsmen by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Wakil.
Wakil revealed that the former lawmaker who represented Ningi Constituency in the previous state assembly was kidnapped on Thursday night, January 14.
The Nigeria Daily understands that the kidnappers are yet to contact any relative of the ex-lawmaker to make their demands known.
“Yes, it is true. A former member of the Bauchi State House of Assembly who represented Ningi Constituency was kidnapped on Thursday at about 8pm within Bauchi metropolis,” said Wakil while interacting with reporters.
“According to the information we received, he was trailed by his abductors who were four in number in a gold coloured car. They trailed him to his house around the BSADP (Bauchi State Agricultural Development Programme) area at Isa Yuguda Guest House within the metropolis,”
“As of this morning (Friday), they have not called yet. Our intelligence men are working hard to get to the root of the situation and rescue him safely,” the PPRO added.
Wakil, however, urged residents to be more security conscious, and take note of vehicles and motorcycles that may be trailing them.
