Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted Aliyu Maidamma, brother to late businessman, Alhaji Dikko Chemist.
He was reportedly kidnapped after sporadic gunshots in Tambuwal town, headquarters of Tambuwal Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
The suspected bandits were said to be on a reprisal attack after their colleagues were neutralised in Kebbe area, 45 kilometers away from Tambuwal by security operatives.
Military personnel are camped in Kebbe town, the headquarters of Kebbe Local Government Area, which is located in one of the remotest parts of the State.
A source from Tambuwal town explained that the bandits storm Tambuwal motor park at about 9 pm in their numbers, shooting sporadically, before kidnaping Maidamma.
He added that those who saw them said they were heading to Kebbe town.
The source said, “there was no light in Tambuwal when the attack took place, which gave bandits the opportunity to carry out the attack successfully without resistance.”
Calls put to the Assistant Superintendent of Police, Ahamed Rufa’e, the State Police Command Public Relations Officer, did not go through.
