Some unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted the sister in-law and brother of the Sokoto State Commissioner for Youth and Sport Development, Bashir Gorau.
Gorau made the disclosure of the abduction on his verified Facebook account yesterday.
While speaking to newsmen, the Commissioner said the bandits shot into the air when they stormed the house. He added that it could have been a targeted crime because apart from his sister in-law and brother, they didn’t take anybody in the village.
There has been no official comments from either the State government or the State’s Police Command as at the time of filing this report.
