Gunmen stormed the residence of Isyaku Ali-Danja, a member representing Gezawa Constituency in the Kano House of Assembly and abducted his mother.
The victim was abducted by the gunmen in Gezawa town around 1am, on Wednesday January 12.
Reports says the gunmen reportedly broke the door of her house and whisked her away to an unknown destination.
The incident was confirmed in a statement by Ali-Danja, who was once a speaker in the House.
He said the gunmen first asked his mother to open the door but she refused. He said:
“Even before I went to Gezawa, the Divisional Police Officers had called me and told me that he deployed his officers to the scene. He said they have already launched investigation into the matter.”
“There is no contact from them so far. We are just praying to Almighty to save her life.”
