“In any case, I expected the media, more specifically those who wrote the story, to get in touch with me to verify the story before going to the press. This kind of stories could endanger my family members’ life,” he stressed.

Report has it that the kidnapped person is the son of a former Vice-Chancellor of the Bayero University Kano, BUK, Prof. Musa Abdullahi.
