EKO HOT BLOG reports that the chairman of Kiyawa Local Government (LG) of Jigawa State, Nasiru Ahmed Kiyawa, is appealing to security operatives to rescue his two wives kidnapped by some unknown gunmen.
This online media platform learnt that the assailants invaded the residence of the LG chairman on Friday night and whisked away his two wives. Kiyawa, who confirmed the attack during an interview with BBC Hausa, said the gunmen stormed his house after Isha’i prayer on Friday night, chasing away people outside before whisking them away to an unknown destination.
“They fired twice at my door before entering,” the chairman said. “From there, they took my two wives, they are still holding them hostage,” he said.
Confirming the attack in a terse statement made available to newsmen, the Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, DSP Lawan Adam Shiisu, said they received an emergency call and immediately sent officers to the scene of the crime.
He, however, said, “Before the arrival of the police officers, the gunmen had already kidnapped the chairman’s wives and fled”.
Shiisu said the command had already dispatched officers to all the nooks and crannies of the area to rescue the victims.
He also appealed to members of the public to assist the police with any useful information that could lead to the arrest of the hoodlums.
