Kano LG chairman’s son abducted, as FSARS rescues four-year-old son of Borno APC chair


The Chairman of Kiru Local Government in Kano State, Alhaji Nasiru Muazu, has confirmed the abduction of his son,  Babangida, by gunmen on Wednesday night.
Muazu confirmed the incident on Friday in Kano.
He said that Babangida, aged 28 and father of two, was kidnapped around midnight at his residence in Kiru.
The chairman, however, declined to give further details, but said the matter had since been reported to the state police command.
“The police have already swung into action with a view to rescuing the victim, “ Muazu said.
The hoodlums, who stormed the residence of Babangida around midnight and whisked him away, are demanding for the N50 million ransom before releasing him.
Efforts to get reaction from the police command was unsuccessful as the phone line of its spokesman, SP Magaji Majiya,  was not going through as at the time of filing this report.
Meanwhile, operatives of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Maiduguri have rescued Kashim Bukar-Dalori, the four-year-old son of the Borno All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman kidnapped on Wednesday.
The boy was kidnapped from school around 1p.m. by an unknown woman who falsely claimed to be a relative.
Demian Chukwu, the Borno Police Commisioner, had earlier said that police personnel had launched a full investigation to rescue the child from his abductors.
Three of the kidnappers were arrested in Maiduguri and Kano on Friday on their way to collect N20 million ransom from a family member of the victim.
The source said: “It has been an exhaustive investigation. The suspects, a male who pulled out to collect the ransom of N20 million in Kano, has also been arrested by our personnel.
“The boy, who was kept in Albarka Hotel in Maiduguri by a lady, was rescued and handed over to the family.
“It was after collecting the money that our IRT personnel from Kano arrested her. After her arrest, they promptly told us where the boy was kept. So, we quickly mobilised our men and cordoned off the hotel in Maiduguri.
“She was the one that went to the school and picked him.”
Edet Okon, Police Public Relations Officer, Borno Command, confirmed the story.
Okon said: “I can comfirm that the son of the APC Chairman that was kidnapped has been rescued and the suspects were also arrested. The suspects would be investigated and charged to court.”
