The Elder Brother to the Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohamed, has been kidnapped.
Mallam Adamu Mohammed was kidnapped in the Bauchi metropolis at about 7pm on this evening.
Confirming the incident, the Senior Special Assistance to the Bauchi State Governor on Media, Muktari Gidado, said Adamu was kidnapped at Kobi Street, where he usually rest with friends.
Muktari Gidado said although Adamu’s abductors have not make any contact as at the time of filling this report, but added that security agencies have been informed on the incident.
Adamu, fondly called Yaya Adamu, was kidnapped hours after his younger brother who is also the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, tested positive for coronavirus.
The state government had earlier in the day issued a directive for total closure of all markets in the state to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Efforts to get the police respond proves abortive, as the police PPRO in Bauchi, Kamal Dotti, neither pick nor respond to calls placed on his mobile phone.
