“The abductors were eight in number and arrived on foot with sophisticated weaponry,” he said. They find it difficult to communicate with us in Hausa Language, although their primary language is Fulani.”

According to Isah, they were able to because ofnthe darkness of the night.

“We ascribed the kidnapping to the activities of informants because it appeared that their main target was the customs officer who had just returned home from his duty post a day before,” he said.
