Armed Gunmen numbering about 13 have invaded embattled Senator Elisha Ishaku Abbo’s compound in the early hours of today, killed his uncle and abducted his stepmother that gave birth eleven days ago.
The senator, who is currently standing trial for assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop disclosed to reporters that the gunmen invaded his house in Mubi North Local Government of Adamawa State at about 1.00 a.m. on Saturday.
Abbo said, “Gunmen invaded my house this morning around 1:00 am. The people who entered my compound are about 13 in number, all carrying AK-47 rifles.”
He explained that in the course of the incident, his neighbours raised an alarm which prompted the attackers to fire gunshots into the air.
He added that in reaction to the alarm, his uncle came out of his house and he was shot dead.
The deceased has been buried and the fate of his stepmother remains uncertain in the hands of her abductors.
