Hafsat Abubakar, the step mother of Salisu Ibrahim, the member representing Doguwa constituency at the Kano state house of assembly, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

Confirming the incident while speaking with journalists on Monday in Kano, Ibrahim said the hoodlums stormed Ririwai town, near the notorious Falgore Forest on Saturday night, and abducted her.

“My step mother, Hajiya Hafsat Abubakar, was in her room when they invaded the house on the fateful day”, he said.

He said the suspects had since demanded for N50 million ransom from the family.

When contacted, Muhammad Kastina, the state police commissioner, confirmed the incident, saying four suspects had already been arrested in connection with the incident.

“We have arrested four persons in connection with the issue and are cooperating with us.” Katsina said. “Their intention was to kidnap the member because of his closeness to the big shots in the state.”

He said all the suspects were Fulanis who hitherto engaged in cattle rustling.

“We are making efforts to rescue her alive,” he added.
