Usman Maku, a brother to Labaran Maku, former information minister, has lost his son and daughter in the hands of bandits who kidnapped and killed them while also demanding for N20 Million ransom on their abducted mother.
The late son of Usman, who was kidnapped in Gudi, was found dead Friday while the funeral of his sister, Sahadatu was ongoing. Sahadatu was shot dead by kidnappers on Tuesday.
The gunmen, suspected to be Fulani had invaded the home of Usman Maku in Gudi, the hometown of Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule, and killed his daughter. They also abducted his eldest son, Salisu, and the wife, Asamawu.
A resident of Gudi, Kaura Danladi told reporters that over 10 gunmen invaded the town at about 8p.m. on Tuesday, shooting sporadically and headed for Maku’s residence, some 200 meters away from the governor’s house.
Danladi said that Maku’s daughter, who graduated from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, was shot through the window by the bandits and died while being rushed to the hospital by family members.
