Residents of Daura emirate have organised special prayers, calling for God to free the district head of Daura from the clutches of his abductors.
Musa Umar, an in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari, was kidnapped 2 months ago at his hometown in Daura.
He is married to the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari’s sister.
According to eyewitnesses, Umar had just returned from the evening prayer and was sitting in front of his house when the gunmen drove in, fired shots into the air to disperse the crowd before forcing him into the car.
The prayers are intended to solicit for peace and harmony across the country.
