Unknown Gunmen have abducted the 17 yr old daughter of a Kano Assembly Lawmaker in Kano on Sunday.
According to a report by Punch, the daughter of Murtala Kore representing Danbatta constituency in the Kano State Assembly was kidnapped around 2:30 am on Sunday.
According to the lawmaker who spoke to an online medium, his daughter who is in SS2 was abducted in his place.
The lawmaker stated that the gunmen came for him and initially wanted to take away his elder brother thinking it was him.
When they realised their mistake, they tied up the elder Kore and took his niece instead.
“I was in Kano when I received a call from home by 2.30am. I learned that kidnappers had abducted my daughter, Juwairiyya.
“The abductors invaded my house and tied up my elder brother, Lawal Kore, whom they had mistaken for me.
“However, when he told them that I wasn’t at home, they told my wives and children that they were there to kidnap me and were not ready to leave empty-handed.
“They, therefore, took my daughter instead of me, the lawmaker said.
Murtala Kore said the abductors have not contacted him yet regarding payments or ransom for his daughter.
