According to the lawmaker: “I was in Kano town when I received a call from my village at about 2:30am or thereabout. I learnt that kidnappers had abducted my daughter, Juwairiyya.

"The abductors attacked my home and tied up my senior brother, Lawal Kore whom they had confused to be me. 

"In any case, when he disclosed to them that I wasn't at home, they went inside my family's quarters to confirm his statement. 

"They told my wives and kids that they were there to capture me and were not prepared to leave with nothing. 

"They grabbed my little girl rather than me."
