The lawmaker said; “I was in Kano when I received a call from home by 2:30a.m. I learned that kidnappers have abducted my daughter, Juwairiyya.

“The abductors invaded my house and tied up my elder brother, Lawal Kore, whom they had mistaken for me.”

Murtala Musa Kore disclosed that when his brother told them he wasn’t at home, they went inside the family’s quarters to verify his claim.

He further said his wives and children were told by the kidnappers, that they came to kidnap the lawmaker and were not ready to leave empty-handed.
