According to Daily Trust, the Islamic scholar and other travellers were abducted on Thursday evening, February 18,  along Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Highway. 

It was gathered that the Imam was travelling in a commercial vehicle with other travellers when their vehicle came under attack.

The secretary to the Council of Imams and Ulamas, Kaduna State branch, Ustaz Yusuf Al’rigassiyu, who confirmed the incident said the council was informed about the abduction.

"Yes, we heard about it because he was our member and we are told that they bandits abducted him along Birnin Gwari area,” he said.

A resident of Rigachikun, who didn’t want to be mentioned because he was not authorised to speak for the family, said the bandits contacted the family of the Imam on Friday but it was not clear if they made a ransom demand.

The resident said the news of his abduction was announced at the mosque during jum’at sermon.
