“I was in Kano when I received a call from home by 2.30am. I learned that kidnappers had abducted my daughter, Juwairiyya.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

“The abductors invaded my house and tied up my elder brother, Lawal Kore, whom they had mistaken for me.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

“However, when he told them that I wasn’t at home, they told my wives and children that they were there to kidnap me and were not ready to leave empty-handed.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

“They, therefore, took my daughter instead of me,” he said.(Wapbaze_Copyright)
