Gunmen abduct Plateau PDP chairman Damishi Sango, demand N100m

Sango, a serial governorship aspirant, is the current Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Plateau State. Emmanuel Tuang, disclosed this in an interview with Daily Sun at the party secretariat, in Jos, and said the party has no formal communication from the abductors.

FORMER Minister of Sports Damishi Sango was kidnapped yesterday on the Jos-Abuja Road, according to family sources.

Akans confirmed that the kidnappers had contacted Sango's family and demanded N100m ransom.

"The family spoke with him and he assured them that he is safe".

PDP Deputy Chairman in Plateau Amos Gombi, who also confirmed the incident, said that Sango and his team were abducted on their way to Abuja.

Mang, however, called on the Federal Government to beef up permanent security post along the route for safety of innocent citizens, particularly during the Saturday PDP convention.

He said that the Plateau Police Command had reached out to the Kaduna Command on the matter.

He said that the Plateau Command was working in synergy with the Kaduna office to rescue the victims and possibly arrest those behind the incident. Tyopev urged members of the public with any useful information to contact the Kaduna or Plateau Command.

Sango was abducted with his companions along Jere-Kagarko road in Kaduna state while travelling in a Lexus jeep which has now been stationed at the Jere police station.

"The incident happened in Jere, Kaduna State, and is not under my jurisdiction. We hope that security agencies will not only see to the release of the PDP chairman and other traveling party officials but put an end to kidnapping on that road".
