Security agencies know the hideouts of the kidnappers but won’t go after them – Abbo

Embattled Senator Elisha Abbo has accused Security agencies of ineptitude and incompetence, saying they know where the kidnappers who killed his uncle and took his stepmother away are but won’t go after them.

Abbo who was accused of assault after the video of him slapping a woman in a sex toy shop went viral stated this while confirming to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, that his uncle was shot and his stepmother kidnapped.

Gunmen numbering about 13 allegedly invaded Senator Elisha Abbo’s family home in the early hours of Saturday and killed his uncle, David Ella.

According to sources, the gangsters also abducted Abbo’s stepmother who was delivered of a baby   11 days ago.

Abbo is the representative of  Adamawa North in the Senate.

He said, “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 of 5:30pm on Saturday) The kidnappers have called me, using  a Cameroonian MTN number, but they had yet to demand a  ransom.”

Abbo lamented that the hoodlums were hiding just about two kilometres away from Mubi town but that neither the military nor the police had been able to dislodge them.

He said,  “The Federal Government, the military and the police are not doing enough in the aspect of insecurity in this country.

“The security agencies know the hideouts of the criminals but they will not go after them.

“Of what use is the army barracks and the mobile police base in Mubi when they cannot go into the bush and dislodge the kidnappers?

“The kidnappers are using the ransoms they are collecting to fund terrorism in this country.  That’s just the truth.”
