The witness added that the gunmen, on arriving the area, went straight to Abbo’s family house and abducted his stepmother, and that as they made away with the victim, Abbo’s uncle came out of his room and raised an alarm on sighting the gunmen.

”Immediately, the gunmen opened fire on him (the uncle), leading to his death, and they went away with the victim unchallenged,” the witness said.

Confirming the incident, the Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Sulaiman Yshaya Nguroje, said the police had deployed officers and men to track down the killer abductors.

He said, “Our men from the IG rapid response team, in conjunction with men from anti-kidnapping unit, as well as men from homicide unit have been deployed in order to rescue and arrest the suspects.”
