Following a media report, it has been revealed that the kidnappers who came on Wednesday night for the Magajin Garin Daura, Musa Umar, in his Daura residence, actually abducted him from the front of his house, where he was sitting.
The prominent traditional ruler is said to be the father-in-law to the Aide de Camp (ADC) to President Muhammadu Buhari.
They shot into the air to scare people away and proceeded to force him into the booth of the Peugeot 406 car they came with.
There were concerns, Nigeria Everyday gathered, over the manner of the abduction considering the age and size of the victim.
A News Agency of Nigeria report by the Daily Trust states that the kidnappers stormed Umar’s Daura residence at 7pm on Wednesday and sporadically shot into the air, scaring the hell out of bystanders, who scampered for safety.
Umar had just returned from the mosque where he took part in the evening prayer when the incident happened. He was sitting in front of his house with some people when the gun totting men came.
A witness told the News Agency of Nigeria that the kidnappers came in a Peugeot 406 saloon car.
After the gunmen left, the Daura council chairman Malam Abba Mato and hundreds of sympathizers came to Umar’s residence, to discuss the bewildering incident.
