Senator Abbo’s stepmother kidnapped, uncle killed


It was a black Saturday for embattled Senator Ishaku Abbo, who was recently caught on CCTV camera assaulting a lady at a sex toy shop in Abuja.

The Adamawa Senator’s uncle was murdered in cold blood and his nursing stepmother identified as Rifikatu Ishaku, abducted in one fell swoop at Muchalla ward of Mubi North Local Government Area of the State.    

Multiple reports, said Rifikatu put to bed 11 days ago. And on the fateful day around 1.00am, the gunmen struck and abducted her but as they were forcefully taking her away, Abbo’s uncle sighted them and raised the alarm, an action, which infuriated the kidnappers and caused them to open fire on him.

The Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, Sulaiman Nguroje, confirmed the development.

He said efforts were being made to get at the gunmen and free Abbo’s uncle.
