The Police Command in Bauchi on Monday confirmed the kidnap of 25-year-old Zulkifiru Mohammed, the son of the State Auditor General, Abdu Usman Aliyu.
Spokesman of the command, DSP Ahmed Wakili told The Nation that Aliyu sustained bullet wounds after being shot while his 50-year-old friend Iliyasu Suleiman was also abducted.
Wakili said the gunmen shot and injured Aliyu when he resisted them before making away with his son and friend.
He said the incident occurred at the weekend on the auditor-general’s way to Kardam village.
According to him, there were about six people in the auditor-general’s car which included three men and three women when the gunmen who were said to have trailed him opened fire, severely wounding him in the process.
