Senator Elisha Abbo, on Saturday morning, lost his uncle, David Ella, to gunmen numbering about 13.

His stepmother, who just gave birth to a baby a few days ago, was also kidnapped by the bandits.

The embattled lawmaker, who is still facing charges over assault of a lady in a viral video, disclosed the sad incident to the media yesterday in Abuja.

“About 13 men armed with AK-47 rifles invaded my family house around 1am on Saturday and shot my uncle dead.

“They dragged my father and brothers out of their rooms and went after my stepmother when they were told that my biological mother was dead.

“They took the poor woman away and left behind her 11-day-old child.

“My stepmother is still with the kidnappers now (as at 5:30pm on Saturday). The kidnappers have called me, using a Cameroonian MTN number, but they are yet to demand a ransom,” he stated.

Abbo added that the bandits hid about two kilometers away from Mubi town before carrying out their devilish act.

He noted that security officials are not doing enough to protect the citizens.
