 Mrs Seriya Raji, mother of Abdulkarim Jamiu Asuku, the Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, has been abducted.
Daily Trust gathered that gunmen invaded her residence in Adavi Local Government Area of the State on Monday night.

An eyewitness said the gunmen whisked her away moments after she observed her evening (Ishai) prayer in a mosque within the house located at Inese/Ovakere new layout in Nagazi community in Adavi LGA.

According to the source, the abductors, about 6 in number, wore masks to conceal their identities.

The eyewitness added  that the armed men entered her house through the mosque and whisked her away to an unknown location.

They have not made any contact with the family since the incident, which happened a few weeks after Kogi State Commissioner for Environment, Adewale Omofaiye, escaped being kidnapped.

William Aya, spokesman of the Kogi State Police Command, neither responded to calls nor text messages as of the time of filing this report.
