A popular musician from Adamawa State known as Ado Daukaka has gone missing after debuting a new song. The controversial song titled Gyara Kayanka condemns politicians in the state.
Ado Daukaka’s single hit the airwaves on Friday, June 24 and the next day, he was never heard from again. He was last seen on Saturday morning after he left his house to attend early morning prayer at a mosque.
One of his relatives, Atiku Mustapha, says his disappearance is not unconnected with the new song ‘Gyara Kayanka‘ where he alleged that some elected politicians of the ruling APC were deceiving the electorate. He said,
‘’It is not surprising that he could be abducted because of his song because in his new song in which he compared the present and past elected members of the Adamawa State House of Assembly. The way and manner things are happening will not augur well for the state.
They just want to intimidate those that are criticising the charade playing out in the state.”
The leader of the Adamawa Concern Citizens, a pressure group in the state, Hussaini Bello, condemned the act. He said, “We totally condemn the abduction of this famous singer. We are investigating the matter and whoever that has hand in it must be exposed. In our society singers use their God-giving talents to capture the mood of the society, the songs sometimes don’t go down well with those in power except if the singer praises them.”
