Kidnappers on Wednesday night abducted the Magajin Garin Daura, Musa Umar, in his Daura residence.
It was reliably gathered that Mr Umar, a retired customs comptroller, was abducted after observing Magrib prayer.
The traditional ruler is the father of Fatima Musa, wife of Colonel Mohammed Abubakar, the Aide de Camp, ADC, to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr Musa’s wife, Hajiya Bilki, is also the daughter of Mr Buhari’s elder sister, Hajiya Amadodo.
Close sources claim that the attackers shot sporadically to disperse crowd and picked the traditional ruler in a Peugeot 406.
After the gunmen left, the Daura council chairman Abba Mato and hundreds of sympathizers came to Umar’s residence, to discuss the bewildering incident.
Police are yet react to the incident.
