Former governor of Kano State, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso and other notable Nigerians have called on Nigeria’s security agencies to unravel the whereabout of Abubakar Idris (Dadiyata) a blogger who was abducted from his home in Kaduna on the 2nd of August, 2019.
Alhaji Kwankwaso in an emotional tweet on Sunday said: “It’s sad that 365 days @dadiyata is still missing without a trace. The Nigerian security agencies have a responsibility to unveil the whereabouts of this young intellectual. Though we miss him dearly, his daughter, wife, family & friends miss him even more. #OneYearWithOutDadiyata.”
Dadiyata as he is popularly known was a vocal voice who criticized the APC Government in both his state and federal level.
Former head of Nigeria’s National Human Rights Commission(NHRC), Prof Chidi Odinkalu in a message he released to commemorate the disappearance of Dadiyata said:
“Nobody has told us the effort they made to find him and how it’s that they can’t account for him and it tell you how little we matter as citizens. It is one year since Dadiyata was snatched and the least we can do is to continue to ask where is Dadiyata and why can’t our government find him and tell us what happened.”
Amnesty International had described Dadiyata as “a victim of enforced disappearance.”
