COMING FROM the house of his second wife in Kano, Adamu Mohammed Duguri, Bauchi State Governor brother was kidnapped while sitting with friends at an upper class joint.
The Telescope Nigeria learnt that he was allegedly whisked away after sporadic shooting that scattered everybody around 7:30 pm on Wednesday evening at Anguwar Jaki in Bauchi metropolis. The kidnappers went straight for their victim.
The news of his abduction comes barely 24 hours after the state governor, Bala Mohammed tested positive to the virus.
The governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado, announced this in a statement on Tuesday.
The governor took the test after he came in contact with the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who was confirmed to have been infected with the virus.
According to the statement, although he has yet to show any symptoms of the disease, he has since gone into self-isolation to prevent any possible spread of the virus.
Efforts to get the officer deputising for the Police Public Relations Officer proved abortive.
