Gunmen have abducted the mother of a member of the Edo State House of Assembly.

It was gathered that 68-year-old Abibat Adjoto, whose son, Kabiru Adjoto, represents Akoko Edo II constituency, was kidnapped at her residence in Ikakumo village, in Akoko Edo Local Government Area of the state.

She was abducted along with one of her adopted sons, whose name has yet to be verified.

According sources, the suspected kidnappers invaded the village at about 1am on Thursday, shooting sporadically for about two hours, causing the villagers to scamper for safety.

Efforts to reach the three-time lawmaker for comments on Saturday were unsuccessful.

But a source close to the family, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, disclosed that the kidnappers forcefully took their victims away, after beating them up.

It was also learnt that the abductors had yet to make any contact with the family of the victims.

The source said, “They came to our village and started shooting. They took mama away and one of her sons.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Osifo Abiodun, said that he would get back to our correspondent on the matter. (TVC)
