The wife of the Katsina State Deputy Accountant General, Hajiya Lubabatu, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
A source close to the family said Hajiya Lubabatu who returned from a lesser Hajj (Umrah) on Tuesday, was abducted on Wednesday night around 9 pm.
It was gathered that the gunmen about fifteen of them gained access into the GRA residence of the Deputy Accountant General, using a Peugeot 206, which the private guards mistook for one of his cars.
The source noted that after the gunmen had entered the compound, they manhandled those met in the house and demanded Hajiya Lubabatu.
Subsequently, after locating her they ordered her inside the car and then drove her out of the premises and reportedly out of Katsina state.
The Deputy Accountant General was said not to be around when the gunmen stormed the house.
