It was not clear if the gunmen had targeted Lauje’s home as family sources say the abductors are yet to make contact.
The APC Chairman in the State, Emmanuel Jekada, has confirmed the attack, and said, security agents have been informed of the development.
Police Public Reations Officer, Kaduna State Police command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, did not respond to calls, even as he did not also reply to a text message sent to him for confirmation.
