It said, “Khalil was kidnapped in November 2020 on the Rigasa-Link Road in Igabi Local Government Area.
“The government has sent condolences to the family.”
Meanwhile, the commissioner said the military and police on Friday night foiled an attack by bandits on the Kasuwan Magani community, Kajuru LGA of the state.
