The witness added that the gunmen opened fire on the uncle leading to his death, and they went away with the victim unchallenged.’’
The Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Sulaiman Yshaya Nguroje, confirmed the situation adding that the police had deployed officers and men to track down the killer abductors.
