Musa Umar, the District Head of Daura (President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown), was on Wednesday kidnapped by some unknown gunmen.
The gunmen invaded Alhaji Umar’s residence in Daura around 7pm, just after the evening prayer, shooting sporadically into the air, before abducting him.
Mr. Umar was reportedly sitting in front of his house when the kidnappers came in a Peugeot 406 saloon car.
The Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, had few days ago during a meeting with the Northern Traditional Rulers Council in Kaduna State, revealed that over 70% of the killings and kidnappings from January – April 2019 happened in Northern Nigeria.
