Gunmen kidnap Kano lawmaker’s mother



Gunmen have abducted the mother of Isyaku Ali-Danja, a member representing Gezawa Constituency in the Kano House of Assembly.

According to Daily Nigerian, the gunmen stormed the residence of the lawmaker’s mother in Gezawa town around 1am, on Wednesday January 12, broke the door and whisked her away to an unknown destination. 

Confirming the incident, Ali-Danja, who was once a speaker in the House, said the gunmen first asked his mother to open the door but she refused. 

“Even before I went to Gezawa, the Divisional Police Officers had called me and told me that he deployed his officers to the scene. He said they have already launched investigation into the matter,” the lawmaker said.


Mr Ali-Danja also said the gunmen are yet to contact him or other members of his family. 

“There is no contact from them so far. We are just praying to Almighty to save her life,” he added.
