Sani was kidnapped during the attack alongside Rigasa Train Station in Igabi local government area of Kaduna state on November 21, during which activist, Rabiu Awwal was killed.

One other younger man recognized as Umar Elkhadab was injured in the assault while the abductors kidnapped Sani.

The men were said to be coming back from Rigachukwu where they met with the Speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly to debate the insecurity in Kaduna.
