Northern musician goes missing for attacking APC

Ado Dahiru Daukaka went missing after visiting the mosque for dawn prayers on Friday, June 24, 2016. His disappearance is perceived to be a reaction to his anti-corruption song directed at the All Progressives Congress.

According to reports, Daukaka made a song titled “Gyara Kayanka”, which criticised members of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

His song, Gyara Kayanka, which means ‘Put your house in order’ in English, predicted that the APC will not be re-elected in 2019. He also mentioned that the party is corrupt.

This, according to his family, made him a political target.

Atiku Mustapha, who spoke to Agence France-Presse (AFP) said, “It is obvious his disappearance is an abduction by some interests who are infuriated by his latest song which exposed corruption among legislators at the state house of assembly,”

“We believe they abducted him as a warning to other critics like him. They just want to muzzle critics.”

Daukaka’s wife, identified as Hadiza Adamu, also confirmed the family's suspicion.

She revealed that her husband has no known enemy, and that his disappearance is related to the anti-corruption song, which allegedly angered some powerful people.

“My husband is not known to be at loggerheads with any one. The only explanation we could provide is that he could have angered some powerful interests with his songs,”

“We call on whoever is behind his disappearance to have pity on us and release him unharmed,” Hadiza said.

Othman Abubakar, the Police Public Relations Officer for Adamawa State Command, stated that investigations have begun into the disappearance of the musician.
