The Katsina State Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Mallam Nasiru Fullo, has said that the national Vice-President of MACBAN, Mannir Lamido, was kidnapped after a conversation with an unidentified caller.

Fullo also stated that the MACBAN leader was on his way to Kaduna via Zaria in Kaduna State alongside his sister-in-law who was to alight in Zaria, adding that he (Lamido) could not be found since then.

Speaking exclusively with Sunday PUNCH on Saturday, Fullo said, “Last Friday, he said he was travelling to Kaduna State along with his sister-in-law, who was to stop in Zaria. Since he dropped her in Zaria and proceeded to Kaduna, his phone numbers were switched off.

“Efforts to get across to him were unsuccessful. When we alerted the police to track his phone, they said that his phone was switched off in Jaji, a suburb of Kaduna.”

Narrating further the state executive noted, “His sister-in-law said she overheard his conversation with someone over the phone. The other party was describing his car as a purple Peugeot 406 and the vice chairman was describing his as a Toyota Corolla gold colour.”

“From my knowledge of him, in the whole of Katsina State, he is having no issues with anyone, he has never told me even if there is any issue. I do not know of anyone that has issues with him. He is a gentleman; he knows how to live with people.”

When asked whether they have contacted the police he maintained that “We wrote to our national office and they wrote to the Abuja office of the Nigeria Police, but till now, I have not heard from them on the outcome of their investigation and I have not contacted them, except I will contact them later.”
