Gunmen have abducted Sani Ribadu, the younger brother of the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu.

A brother to Mr. Ribadu, Arabi Ribadu, informed PREMIUM TIMES that Sani was abducted in his farm in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, on Sunday.

“He was abducted by gun wielding men in his farm along Fufore road at about 5 p.m. this evening,” he said.

He also said the abductors took away their victim and abandoned his car.

“Up till this moment, there is no communication from them,” he said.

Efforts to speak with the police spokesperson in Adamawa State has been unsuccessful as his phone was switched off.

Adamawa is one of the states worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, with Mubi, the second largest town in the state, now under the control of the insurgents.

    States could have joined federal govt in establishing their own police to increase employment and improve greatly the security situation, but fear of losing control of Nigeria by some people has led us to this sorry state whee control has indeed been tragically lost completely…

    God will save nigeria comes february next year cos he has failed totally in his quest to save this nation from his comatose and bruhaha that they created for his own personal interest. Let him eradicate terrorist amidst us and such issues will not happen to his kingmen again. I pity ribadu for this woe. GEJ has failed the nation, to protect every citizen like he read in his speech and sworn to. We need change

    Ribadu is a kidnapper himself so anyone
    that can abduct his family is ok.

    His father in-law who helped built his N200M house will also help him pay the ransom

    The raison d’etre of quota systeming is our oil fuelled rentier culture. You omitted that nexus. Watch what happens when real productivity is forced on us. Watch all these neofeudal delusions collapse under the weight of their inconsistencies.
