Gunmen storm another VIPs home, abduct 2 family members

Gunmen, on Sunday, stormed the Kusada country home of a House of Representatives member representing the Kusada/Ingawa/Kankiya Federal Constituency in Katsina State, Abubakar Kusada.

The gunmen abducted two of the lawmaker’s relatives whose names were given as Sulaiman Musa and Talatu Musa, and injured another one, Jamilu Musa.

Residents said the gunmen stormed the residence around 1am and asked for the mother of the lawmaker.

It was learnt that the gunmen abducted the two relatives when they could not see the Rep member’s mother.

It was also gathered that the gunmen inflicted injuries on Jamilu while attempting to escape.

Multiple sources, including a very close relative of the lawmaker, said both Kusada and his mother were not around when the gunmen struck.

One of the sources said the lawmaker, who was in Katsina when the incident happened, reportedly left for Abuja after reporting the incident at the Kusada Divisional Police headquarters.
