It was a double tragedy for the family of the late former Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Zakawanu Garuba, who died Saturday morning, as gunmen suspected to be kidnappers abducted his wife, three children and driver same day.
Zakawanu Garuba reportedly died Saturday morning at an Abuja hospital of undisclosed ailment.
Mrs. Hassana Garuba and her children who were on their returning home from Abuja, were reportedly kidnapped Saturday afternoon along Auchi/Abuja road, between Okene in Kogi state and Okpella in Edo state.
It was gathered that she was on her way to Auchi with her children and her late husband’s mother, ahead of the corpse, in preparation for the burial ceremony when the gunmen-wielding stormed out of the bush and took them to custody.
