“The incident happened on Monday night around 10 pm. The kidnappers who came were many because they spread themselves across the village and released several gunshots before they went away with their target.

“Since that Monday, nobody knows the whereabouts of the kidnapped victim. It is only this morning (Wednesday) that the kidnappers allowed him to speak with the family members and I learned that they were yet to demand for any ransom.

“There has been disquiet in the community because the man has some health challenges before his kidnap and the villagers are really worried over his whereabouts”

When contacted, the spokesman for the Plateau State Police Command, Alabo Alfred, denied knowledge of the kidnap incident.
