Ex Minister, husband kidnapped
The immediate past Minister of Environment, Mrs Laurentia Mallam, has been kidnapped along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.
She was abducted along with her husband, Pius on Monday evening.
Spokesman of Kaduna State Police Command, Aliyu Usman, said the suspected kidnappers spared the couple’s driver.
