One Zilkifiru Mohammed, a 25-year-old son of Bauchi State Auditor-General, Abdu Aliyu, has reportedly escaped from his kidnappers’ den.
Recall that Zilkifiru was Kidnapped by the gunmen along Bauchi-Tafawa Balewa highway on Saturday, January 24, after failed attempt to abduct his father.
The Auditor-General was reportedly shot in the face during the attack. He is currently battling for survival at an undisclosed hospital and billed to undergo a surgery soon.
A friend close to the Auditor-General’s son, who confirmed the latest development to Vanguard, stated that Zilkifiru escaped from the den in the early hours of Sunday while his abductors were asleep.
The Auditor’s friend identifid as Iliyasu Suleiman, who was also abducted, could not escape with Mohammed because of his old age and the beating he received from the kidnappers, the friend said.
