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".
