Attempted kidnapping of the body of the delegate who died at the convention

An attempt was made to kidnap the body of Isah Baba-Buji, a delegate from the state of Jigawa, who died in the presidential primaries of the ruler All Progressives Congress (APC) as they carried him home to bury him. The deceased politician was the APC Area Vice President for Jigawa Southwest. He died Tuesday in Abuja while preparing to travel to the party’s convention venue. Ali Safiyanu, the local government information officer for the Buji council area, the council of origin of the deceased, told PREMIUM TIMES that suspected gunmen are blocking the caravan of the deceased along the troubled Abuja- Kaduna. He said the attempted kidnapping forced those transporting the body to make a U-turn and return to Abuja. “They returned to Abuja and spent the night there, passing through Nasarawa, Plateau and Bauchi states the next day before arriving in Jigawa on Wednesday night. “He was buried that Wednesday night in the Birnin Kudu local government area,” Mr. Safiyanu said. He said the deceased was survived by two wives and 16 children.
