Gunmen suspected of being bandits attacked the home of Bashir Usman Gorau, the Sokoto State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, abducting his elder brother’s wife, Alhaji Lawali Gorau, and another brother, Hassan Manya.
On Wednesday, Gorau shared the news of the kidnapping on his verified Facebook account.
“Innalillahi wa Inna wa innalillahi Rajiuun!!!” read the post.
“Bandits attacked our house in Gorau Town, Goronyo local government area, around 12:45 a.m., abducting the wife of our elder brother Alhaji Lawali Gorau and one of our brothers Hassan Manya.
“May God keep them safe and get them back to Us, Amin. I’m in desperate need of your help, Muslim.”
Sokoto is one of the most terrorized cities in Nigeria.
