The Police command in Sokoto State on Saturday confirmed the abduction of a 75-year-old woman, Hajiya Fatima Mohammed, by unidentified gunmen.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the command, Mr. Sabo Kurawa, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Sokoto that the incident occurred at about 8pm on Wednesday in Kebbe, headquarters of Kebbe Local Government Area of the state.

NAN learnt that the victim is also the mother of Alhaji Yusha’u Kebbe, the state’s governorship candidate of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party in the 2011 elections.

Kurawa explained that the whereabouts of the kidnapped woman was still unknown as the kidnappers had yet to either contact the police or the family of the victim.

“We are doing everything humanly possible to trace her whereabouts and free her safely from her abductors.

“We are, however, soliciting the support of the public by rendering useful intelligence reports that may lead to the successful rescue of the kidnapped woman,” he added.

Her son, Kebbe, also confirmed the abduction of the mother.

“It is true that my mother has been kidnapped. However, this is only what I can say for now apart from seeking for fervent prayers from the public for her safe return to her family,” he said.
