Police are searching for the popular Hausa singer, Ado Halliru Daukaka, who went missing on Friday. Othman Abubakar, the police spokesman in Adamawa, said the security agencies were doing their best to find the singer, who disappeared after releasing a song highlighting incompetence and corruption among politicians.
His song, entitled Gyara kayanka, meaning "Let us do the right thing" in Hausa, points out how politicians make promises and never fulfill them.
One of his wives Hadiza Dauda told the BBC that Mr Daukaka was visited by unknown people in the early hours of Friday and that was the last time the family had set eyes on him.
"We have been searching for him. His phone is off. We are doing all possible but there is no sign of him. We are appealing to everyone to please help us find him. We are afraid for his life."
Friends and fans of Ado Daukaka have taken to social media urging people to pray for the missing singer.
