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.

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.
