The eldest son of the deceased, Ahmed Lawal, while speakijg to newsmen on Monday in Katsina, said that their father was kidnapped and killed by bandits.
“Our father was kidnapped in his farm along Katsina-Jibia International Road leading to Niger Republic. Baba was lured to the farm by the caretaker of the farm when suddenly the bandits appeared and whisked him away, together with our brother who drove him to the farm.
