Gunmen Thursday night killed a member of Bauchi State House of Assembly, Honorable Musa Mante Baraza, and kidnapped his two wives and a year-old son.
The deceased who represented Dass State Constituency in the state Assembly was killed in his hometown, Dass, the headquarters of Dass Local Government Area of the State.
A member of the House, Hon Abdul Ahmed Bura, confirmed the incident on telephone Friday morning.
He said, “It is true. That is how we heard the sad news of his death.”
Bura also confirmed the kidnapping of the deceased lawmaker’s wives and son, adding that as of this morning (Friday), the kidnapped women and child are still with the gunmen at an unknown destination.
Efforts to speak with the Speaker of the House so far proved futile, while the police are yet to say anything on the incident.
