•Ex-ABU VC, Prof. Abdullahi Mustapha

Unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers, on Friday night, stormed the residence of a former Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, Prof. Abdullahi Mustapha, and abducted four persons.

The suspected kidnappers also shot and injured an ABU hunter, during their illicit operation.

Those kidnapped at the ex-VC’s house, located at Hayin Malam, in Zangon Shanu area of Zaria, Kaduna State, include Maryam Abdullahi Mustapha, a staff of ABU, her two children, and elder sister.

Meanwhile, PRNigeria has reliably gathered the two children were rescued when a neighbour fired and killed one of the kidnappers. The elder sister was also released when the gunmen discovered that she had asthma.

A witnessed in the neighbourhood said that only the mother, Maryam was taken away by the kidnappers.

Attempts by PRNigeria to get reactions from the police spokesperson in Kaduna State, DSP Yakubu Sabo, proved abortive as calls and text messages sent him were not replied.
