Kidnappers on Wednesday abducted the Magajin Garin Daura, Musa Umar, in his Daura residence.

The traditional ruler is the father of Fatima Musa, wife of Colonel Mohammed Abubakar, the Aide de Camp, ADC, to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Umar, a retired customs comptroller, was abducted after observing Magrib prayer.

Umar had just returned from the mosque where he took part in the evening prayer when the incident happened.

It was learnt that the attackers shot sporadically to disperse crowd and picked the traditional ruler in a Peugeot 406.

After the gunmen left, the Daura council chairman Malam Abba Mato and hundreds of sympathizers came to Umar’s residence, to discuss the bewildering incident.

Kidnapping has been on the rise in northern Nigeria.

On Monday, chairman of Universal Basic Education Commission, Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar and his daughter, Yasmin were kidnapped on the notorious Abuja-Kaduna highway. His driver was killed by the gunmen.

They were released the following day after some ransom was allegedly paid to the gunmen.

At a quarterly meeting with Northern Traditional Rulers in Kaduna on Tuesday, the acting Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Mohammed Adamu, said that 1,071 persons lost their lives in crime-related cases across the country in the first quarter of 2019.

Between January and April, at least 685 persons were kidnapped across the country.

He said 767 of the persons killed were from the North.

Giving a further breakdown of the deaths, Adamu said the North-West topped the death list with 436; North-Central came second with 250; while the South-South geopolitical zone recorded 130 deaths during the period under review.

He added that Zamfara State with 203 murder cases topped the national prevalence rate, Kaduna State followed closely with 112 reported cases while 90 people were killed in Benue State.
