Updated: Gunmen kill Senator Abbo’s uncle, kidnap step mother

Tragedy struck in the early hours of Saturday at the  family house of embattled Senator Ishaku Elisha Abbo ( PDP Adamawa North ), in Mubi, Adamawa when gunmen invaded the  place and killed his uncle ,  Elder David Ella .

The armed men numbering about 13, also abducted abducted the Senator’s step mother who was just delivered of a little child, 11 days ago.

The Senator, who was caught slapping a lady in a viral video recently, stated this while addressing journalists in Abuja.

Abbo said,  “About 13 gunmen armed with AK 47, invaded my family house around 1am on Saturday and shot my uncle dead.

“They dragged my father and brothers out of their rooms and went after my step mother when they were told that my biological mother was late.

“They took the poor woman away and left behind,  her 11 day-old child.

“My step mother is still with the kidnappers now (as of 5:30pm on Saturday.) The kidnappers have called me with a Cameroonian MTN number but they had yet to demand ransom.”

Abbo lamented that the kidnappers  have camps just about two kilometres away from Mubi town but that neither the military nor the security operatives have been able to dislodge them.

He said, “The Federal Government, the military and the police are not doing enough in the aspect of insecurity in this country.

“The security agencies and the military know the hideouts of the criminals but they will not go after them.

“Of what use is the Army barracks and the Mobile Police base in Mubi when they cannot enter two kilometres into the bush and dislodge the kidnappers?

“The kidnappers are using the ransom they are collecting to fund terrorism in this country.  That’s just the truth.”
