Reports emerged on Saturday that Senator Elisha Abbo lost a member of his family members to some unknown gunmen.
Speaking on the death on the murder of his uncle and abduction of his stepmother, by gunmen who attacked his family’s residence in Muchalla ward, Mubi local government area of Adamawa state on Saturday, the senator said who is under prosecution for assaulting a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja, in his statement to newsmen said;
“About 13 gunmen armed with AK 47, invaded my family house around 1 am on Saturday and shot my uncle dead. They dragged my father and brothers out of their rooms and went after my stepmother 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 stepmother is still with the kidnappers now and the kidnappers have called me with a Cameroonian MTN number but they are yet to demand ransom.”
“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,” Senator Abbo said.
