“He was driving in his personal car around 6.30 p.m., along Mubi-Maraba road near the toll-gate when he was abducted. There was sound of shooting around the area, when our men arrived, they met an empty car identified as his.
We are hoping of positive result and I want to use this opportunity to advise members of the public with relevant security information on criminals to avail the command same for necessary action” Yahaya said.
