Unknown persons abducted Juwairiyya, a 17-year-old daughter of Murtala Musa Kore, the member representing Danbatta Constituency in Kano State House of Assembly, on Sunday morning.
The incident occurred around 2a.m. at the legislator’s home in Kore village, Danbatta Local Government Area of Kano State, the lawmaker said.
Juwairiyya is an SS II student of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Jogana.
Kore disclosed that the attackers wanted to kidnap him but took away his daughter in his absence.
“I was in Kano when I received a call from home by 2:30a.m.
“I learned that kidnappers have abducted my daughter, Juwairiyya.
“The abductors invaded my house and tied up my elder brother, Lawal Kore, whom they had mistaken for me.
“However, when he told them that I wasn’t home they went inside my family’s quarters to verify his claim.
“They told my wives and children that they were there to kidnap me and were not ready to leave empty-handed.
“They, therefore, kidnapped my daughter instead of me,” the lawmaker said.
He, however, said the kidnappers had yet to contact him.
