The deputy chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State, Shuaibu Idris Lauje and his daughter have been abducted from his home by unidentified gunmen, Daily Trust reports.
His house is located in Kwanan Zango, closed to Maraban Jos in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Daily Trust gathered from family sources that Lauje and his daughter were whisked away by gun wielding men at 1:30 am on Thursday when the gunmen stormed the community shooting sporadically to instill fear among residents.
It was not clear if the gunmen had targeted Lauje’s home as family sources say the abductors are yet to make contact.
The APC Chairman in the State, Emmanuel Jekada, has confirmed the attack to Daily Trust.
He said that security agents have been notified of the development.
However, the Kaduna State Police command spokesperson, ASP Mohammed Jalige, did not answer his calls.
He did not also reply to a text message sent to him seeking confirmation.
Kaduna has been expecting attacks by bandits for a while now and the security agencies seem to be overwhelmed.
Just two days ago, gunmen invaded Gonar Rogo, a remote village in Kajuru council area of the State, and killed 15 people while also injuring five others.
