SP Sulaiman Nguroje, Police Public Relations Officer confirmed that the 90-year-old victim was taken from his home in Yola.

“The command had already deployed Anti-kidnapping and Operation Farauta Squads for quick response and rescue missions,”
Nguroje said.

Meanwhile, Mayo – Belwa, Jada, Ganye and Toungo local government areas in southern Adamawa have been under siege due to the activities of kidnappers.
