Alhaji Muhammed was reportedly kidnapped while he was working on his farm in Daftau Village, Danmusa Local Government Area of the state.
According to village sources, Muhammed said to be “between 78 and 80 years of age” and of fragile health, was missing after he failed to participate in the seven early morning Muslim prayers.
Efforts to reach him at the mosque and farm fueled speculations by friends and family members who later confirmed that he had been abducted.
