Unknown gunmen have kidnapped Yaya Adamu, the elder brother to the governor of Bauchi State, Sen. Bala Mohammed.
The kidnap took place at Ungwan Jaki, in Bauchi metropolis around 7.30 pm on Wednesday.
A family member who spoke to news men on the condition of anonymity, said the entire family has been left into confusion as to what to be more concerned with, since the governor on the other hand is battling with ill health.
“It is true that the elder brother of the governor was kidnapped yesterday. The whole thing is confusing because we don’t know which to focus on; whether it is the health of the governor or to find his missing brother.
“I just hope they don’t hurt him. That gentleman (Governor’s brother) doesn’t deserve this. I hope they release him on time so that he can reunite with his family,” he prayed.
Efforts by news men to get the Bauchi State Police Command to confirm the development proved abortive, as the command did not answer calls put across to them.
