Gunmen in the early hours of Wednesday abducted Hajiya Zainab, the mother of the minority leader of the Kano State House of Assembly, Isiyaku Danja.

NAIJA LIVE TV gathered that the assailants, numbering about 10, stormed Gezawa, headquarters of the Gezawa Local Government Area, in about four vehicles.

The hoodlums, who were armed with sophisticated weapons, were said to have entered the victim’s house around 1am before whisking her away to an unknown location.

The lawmaker, who confirmed the abduction, said the gunmen had yet to contact the family.

Isiyaku, a former Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, is currently representing Gezawa in the House.


The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said efforts were being intensified to rescue the victim and arrest the hoodlums.
