GUNMEN ABDUCT FATHER OF FORMER PLATEAU STATE GOVERNOR
Gunmen have abducted the father of the former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, again.
Sources say the gunmen also went to his house in Mushere community, and took him away to an unknown destination.
A resident of the community, Bulus Gambo confirmed the abduction of the former Governor’s father to reporters in Jos this morning.
Gambo said, “The Information is true. It happened in the early hours of Thursday. The old man was just in his house when some gunmen came and took him away.”
Spokesman for the Plateau State Police Command, Ubah Ogaba, said security agents had been deployed to the Council Area to trail Pa Dariye’s abductors.
He said “As soon as we got the information, the Commissioner of Police led other officers to Bokkos. The security team detailed to go after the abductors have already swung into action and we hope the victim will be released soon.”
This is the second time the former Governor's father would be abducted.
