There are people that put their precious lives on the high risk simply because they want to see a working society and always speak out against anything happening which they are not comfortable with.

Dadiyata was a young and smart Nigerian who was passionate about a working society but he is currently facing the greatest trial of his life as his whereabouts remains unknown even after 19 months of his kidnapping. 

Born Abubakar Idris Usman, on June 3, 1985, he holds Bachelor degree in Mass Communication from Bayero University, and later sponsored by Kwankwaso administration to Malaysia for his Master's degree. 

He had worked with Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, Kaduna and was a lecturer at Federal University, Dutsinma, Katsina State before he was kidnapped. 

Dadiyata was a social media influencer and a popular figure on Twitter, he had used his social media activism to criticize the government of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State, and also the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. 

Unfortunately, Dadiyata was kidnapped at his Barnawa residence in Kaduna State on August 1, 2019. According to his family sources, his abductors neither demand ransom nor state the reason for his abduction.
