The Bauchi State Police Public Relations Officer Ahmed Wakil confirmed the development to The ICIR in a telephone interview on Sunday.
He said, “Yes, the news is true. I got across to one of his sons, who told me he (Toro) was abducted around Akwanga road in Nasarawa while returning from Abuja. Other details when I get them will be communicated to you.”
