Senator Elisha Abbo (PDP-Adamawa North) family home was in the early hours of Saturday invaded by gunmen numbering about 13.
Naija News understands that the gunmen killed the Senators uncle, David Ella and also abducted Abbo’s stepmother.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Senator Elisha Abbo said, “About 13 men armed with AK-47 rifles invaded my family house around 1 am 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 5:30 pm on Saturday) The kidnappers have called me, using a Cameroonian MTN number, but they had yet to demand a ransom.”
Senator Abbo also claimed that security operatives know the hideouts of the criminals.
“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?
“The kidnappers are using the ransoms they are collecting to fund terrorism in this country. That’s just the truth,” he said.
