Senator Elisha Abbo, who is famous for assaulting a woman in a sex shop, has suffered a loss after his uncle was killed and his stepmother kidnapped by unknown assailants earlier today.
A witness said the kidnappers stormed Abbo’s country home in the early hours of Saturday and killed Abbo’s uncle for raising alarm as they were taking away the senator’s stepmother identified as Rifikatu Ishaku.
According to witnesses, the senator’s family home located in Muchalla ward of Mubi North Local Government Area of the state was invaded by the gunmen around 1am on Saturday.
Madam Ishaku who just had a baby a couple of weeks ago was carted off at gunpoint.
The witness explained on arriving Muchala, the gunmen went straight to Abbo’s family house and abducted the stepmother.
He said as they were taking her away, Abbo’s uncle came out of his room and shouted on sighting the gunmen.
”The gunmen opened fire on him (the uncle), leading to his death, and they went away with the victim unchallenged,” the witness said.
Confirming the incident, the Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, Sulaiman Nguroje, put the time of the incident at just before the dawn of Saturday, and assured that efforts were being made to get at the gunmen and free Abbo’s uncle.
He said the Commissioner of Police had since deployed specially trained anti-kidnapping officials and they were on the trail of the kidnappers.
