Gunmen abduct wife, son of Atiku’s security detail, lawmaker’s brother in Adamawa

Suspected kidnappers have abducted the wife and son of a security detail of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

The kidnappers were believed to have gone for the said aid to Atiku, whose name is not given but confirmed to be a police personnel, but took his wife and son when they did not meet the man.

Sources said Wednesday that the incident took place in the night of Monday in Yolde-Pate, Yola, when the target was believed to be still around after reportedly having come to town with Atiku for the weekend.

“The kidnappers believed that the police personnel, being so close to Atiku, would have money, so they went for him but took his wife and son when they did not find him,” a source said.
