About 15 gunmen attacked the uncle of Nigerian Senator, Elisha Abbo in the early hours of Saturday and murdered his uncle, David Ella and kidnap stepmother who just gave birth to 11 days old baby.
The Senator representing Adamawa North made this known while addressing journalist in Abuja.
He said, “About 13 men armed with AK-47 rifles invaded my family house around 1 am on Saturday and shot my uncle dead.
“They dragged my father and brothers out of their rooms and went after my stepmother when they were told that my biological mother was dead.
“They took the poor woman away and left behind her 11 day-old child.
“My stepmother is still with the kidnappers now (as of 5:30 pm on Saturday) The kidnappers have called me, using a Cameroonian MTN number, but they had yet to demand a ransom.”
The Senator expressed his displeasure saying that the criminal’s hideout is just 2km away from the Mubi town, but the military and police officers couldn’t come around rescue his family and nabbed them.
He said, “The Federal Government, the military and the police are not doing enough in the aspect of insecurity in this country.
“The security agencies know the hideouts of the criminals, but they will not go after them.
“Of what use is the army barracks and the mobile police base in Mubi when they cannot go into the bush and dislodge the kidnappers?
“The kidnappers are using the ransoms they are collecting to fund terrorism in this country. That’s just the truth.”
