The Command’s spokesman, ASP Aliyu Usman, told newsmen in Kaduna that the two were abducted along Bwari/Jere axis on Kaduna-Abuja highway on Monday evening.

Usman said the abductors took away the former minister and her husband, but spared their driver unharmed.
He assured that the Police was tracking down the perpetrators and would ensure the release of the victims unharmed.

Sources indicated that the abductors had reached out to the minister’s family demanding for ransom.
