Gunmen Abduct Plateau PDP Chairman

THISDAY Breaking-News

Seriki Adinoyi in Jos

As pressure mounts towards the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), gunmen Wednesday evening abducted the Plateau State Chairman of the party, Chief Damishi Sango, along the Kafanchan-Abuja highway.

The former minister was said to have left Jos around 2pm for Abuja for the party’s National Convention when the abductors took him on the way.

It was gathered that the gunmen forced Sango’s car to stop and immediately whisked him away with his driver, abandoning the car on the road.

Since then, neither him nor his driver has been seen.

The state police command is yet to make any public statement on the abduction, but the state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. John Akans, confirmed the incident Thursday morning.

    Is this not a hatchet job? How did the kidnappers just appear at that time and take him and all the occupants in the vehicle? Why did they kidnappers not apprehend him when he was travelling to Kaduna? As far as I know, Jere town has a police post there? What happened to the police? But by the way, why did the honourable member decide to embark on an evening journey without the necessary security paraphernalia? This country is truly sick.

    It is a pity and shame. At the apportioned time, the request for State Police will be considered
