Nine gunmen on Sunday night, broke into the house of the former Chairman of the Presidential Taskf Team on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina and abducted his security man.
The gunmen were said to have abducted the security man whose name was given as Ibrahim after searching the house and finding no other person there.
Maina’s mother who was living in the house had relocated to another part of the town following a similar attack on one of Maina’s houses in Abuja.
The gunmen were said to have arrived the house at about 8:30 Pm asking for the whereabouts of Maina.
A family source who does not want his name in print said some of the men who dressed in army uniforms came in two vehicles, 1 Hilux van and a Peugeot 406 salon car.
He said the Hilux van was parked by the gate of the house, while the 406 was driven into the compound while the operation lasted.
The family source said the security man was beaten, handcuffed and driven to a bush out of Kaduna in the boot of the 406 and left there until some villagers rescued him.
Said the family source, “Assasination squad were sent to Maina’s mothers house to kill him and his mother and they blasted the door.
“They were about nine of them, four of them entered the hous with a 406 and five stayed outside by the gate. All the five were dressed in army uniforms while four were in jeans.
“They hit the security guard and wee shouting “where is Maina and where is his mother?”
“They said they want Maina dead, they also said they would kill the security man if he doesn’t show them where Maina and his mother were.
“After that, they broke the front and back doors to the house and ransacked the house and broke the ceiling and walls looking for Maina and his mother but unknown to them.
The mother has been away for two months now.
After they finished with the mother’s house they took the security guard at the house and put him inside the boot of the 406 and handcuffed him, then took him into the bush very far from the town and thee him into the bush where some villagers found him lying down still handcuffed and they brought him to Kaduna where he was taken to the police station.
“Meanwhile the police bomb squad and other personnel have been deployed there bthe house to call comb it in case the criminals planted something sinister or hatch another plan.”
Efforts to get the police to comment was not successful as the police public relations officer was not picking his calls.
