Information reaching TheNigerian has confirmed the abduction of prominent Kannywood actor, producer and director, Salisu Mu’azu and two others by unidentified gunmen.

According to reports, the movie director alongside two others was kidnapped at Saya Village of Bassa local government area of Plateau state on Thursday.

Sources disclosed the victims were abducted on their way back to Jos from Kaduna after attending a one day conference organized by Central Bank of Nigeria and Bankers Committee on Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) in Kaduna.

Confirming the incident, the brother of the abductee, Sani Mu’azu who is also a prominent Nollywood actor said they were kidnapped together but due to his ill-health, the kidnappers granted him freedom.

According to Sani, “We were robbed and I am lucky to have escaped but my younger brother, Salisu Mu’azu and the two friends we gave a ride to Jos on their way to Bauchi, Danlami Yanke-Yanke and Bature were kidnapped.”

“We left Kaduna around 4 pm and reached Saminaka around 8 pm because the road is bad, so we were moving at slow speed, we break our fast in Saminaka,“

“We were kidnapped together and I didn’t escape as widely circulated, they (kidnappers) started dragging us into the bush, then I fell down while they were beating me, then my brother said they shouldn’t beat me I am not feeling fine, they returned me to my car and let go.”

Mu’azu further revealed that after they took him back to his car, they opened the booth and checked his travelling bag, and then “told me to go, they returned my phone back and said they would contact me about my brother.”

The kidnappers contacted him Friday morning and demanded N10m million as ransom.
