It could be recalled that the mother was said to have been picked up by operatives who claimed to be working for the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) at her residence in Fajikunda Dumos  on the 1st January, 2015.

After 32 days, the family members said, “We are renewing our call on the authorities to release our relative. We have been traumatized by her disappearance because she is aging and plays a crucial role in the family as a leader,” the source added.
