Gunmen numbering about 13 allegedly invaded Senator Elisha Abbo’s family home in the early hours of Saturday and killed his uncle, David Ella.
According to sources, the gangsters also abducted Abbo’s stepmother who was delivered of a baby 11 days ago.
The lawmaker, who was caught slapping a lady in a viral video recently, stated these while addressing journalists in Abuja.
Abbo is the representative of Adamawa North in the Senate.
He said, “About 13 men armed with AK-47 rifles invaded my family house around 1am on Saturday and shot my uncle dead.
“They dragged my father and brothers out of their rooms and went after my stepmother when they were told that my biological mother was dead.
“They took the poor woman away and left behind her 11 day-old child.
“My stepmother is still with the kidnappers now (as of 5:30pm on Saturday) The kidnappers have called me, using a Cameroonian MTN number, but they had yet to demand a ransom.”
Abbo lamented that the hoodlums were hiding just about two kilometres away from Mubi town but that neither the military nor the police had been able to dislodge them.
He said, “The Federal Government, the military and the police are not doing enough in the aspect of insecurity in this country.
“The security agencies know the hideouts of the criminals but they will not go after them.
“Of what use is the army barracks and the mobile police base in Mubi when they cannot go into the bush and dislodge the kidnappers?
