House of Reps Member, Hon. Garba Durbunde Narrates Ordeal In Kidnappers Den

The lawmaker from Kano was kidnapped on Tuesday in Jere, along the Abuja-Kaduna road while driving to Kano from Abuja.

Member of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Garba Umar Durbunde (APC-Sumaila/Takai) has disclosed that his abductors threatened to kill him if he refused to give them a reasonable amount of money.

The lawmaker from Kano was kidnapped on Tuesday in Jere, along the Abuja-Kaduna road while driving to Kano from Abuja.

Narrating his ordeal to Punch, Durbunde said the hoodlums numbering 14 were well armed with deadly weapons.

”I spent over 21 hours with them and they released me about 7.30pm.

”They kidnapped me and I travelled with them for over four hours into the bush from point to point.

”I met 14 of them; they were armed to the teeth. They all carried guns, daggers and knives; it was terrible.

”At a point, they threatened that they would slaughter me. Those people are fearless, ruthless; they can kill anybody,” he said.

The lawmaker said he had to undergo medical check-up after he was released because of the psychological trauma he faced in the hands of the kidnappers.

”My brother, I thank God that I am now stable.

”But, I must tell you that yesterday (Wednesday), I couldn’t sleep.

”The experience was terrible and nobody should pray for it,” he stated.

Durbunde revealed that the moment his abductors dragged him out of his vehicle, they saw his red cap and concluded that he was a political associate of a former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

”They said I was a Kwankwaso ally,” he said.
