A member of the Kaduna State House of Assembly representing Tudun Wada Constituency, Ibrahim Samaila has been reportedly kidnapped by unknown gunmen on Tuesday at his residence in Abakpa, Kaduna North Local Government area.

According to an eyewitness account, “the kidnappers came in a Sienna Car and within few seconds, their other gang members joined them and whisked the lawmaker away

“The kidnappers were armed with sophisticated weapons. They shot at a vehicle vending pure water which was passing by, thinking it wanted to block them,” the witness said.

A family source said the abductors later contacted the lawmaker’s relatives warning them against involving the police in the matter.

The gang also urged the family of Mr. Samaila, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).to be ready to pay whatever ransom they demand in exchange for the lawmaker’s freedom.
