The mother of Governor Yahaya Bello’s Chief of Staff, Abdulkarim Jamiu Asuku was kidnapped by Unknown gunmen on Monday evening.
It was gathered that the incident happened at her residence in Nagazi community, under Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State.
A resident of Inese/Ovakere new layout in Nagazi community, where Mrs Seriya Raji resided, told our correspondent that the gunmen stormed her residence at about 7:40 p.m shortly after she observed evening (Ishai) prayer in her mosque within the house.
The abductors, according to the source, were six in number, dressed in black suits with masks and holding a ‘Ghana Must Go’ bag suspected to have contained guns and other dangerous weapons.
He said they entered her house through the mosque and whisked her away using their car.
