Parents, friends and associates of Abubakar Idris Dadiyata, a journalist and social critic who was declared missing two years ago are still worried over the whereabouts of their own.
It was gathered that Dadiyata was reportedly abducted by some gunmen two years ago in Kaduna.
Dadiyata started his journalism career as CAMPUS LIFE correspondent for The Nation Newspaper where he contributed to the weekly pullout from Bayero University, Kano.
He was kidnapped while on his way to his residence on Friday, August 2nd 2019.
It is now exactly two years that the Social critic cum journalist was abducted.
His aged parents, friends and colleagues are currently worried about his whereabouts.
Some of his colleagues, friends and associates noted that they were more concerned about the return of their colleagues.
They urged security agencies and other stakeholders to ensure that Dadiyata is returned safely.
One of his close friends, Abubakar Adam Ibrahim in a statement obtained by DAILY POST POST on Monday noted that the aged parents are still waiting to see the arrival of their son.
Ibrahim said, “Two years ago today, Abubakar Idris Dadiyata was kidnapped from his residence in Kaduna.
“Since then, neither he nor his car has been seen. In December 2019, I spoke to his parents. They are still praying for his return.
“His wife witnessed his abduction. She has been lost without her husband or any news of him. His oldest daughter is still waiting for his return.
“He had promised to help her put together this puzzle he had bought her. They have been waiting for two long years.
“Fingers point at Nigerian authorities, who have denied taking him. There has been no ransom demand, there has been no contact. Only a whistling silence.”
