Gunmen abduct Damishi Sango, 4 others; demand N100m

I’m not perturbed by Atiku’s movement from APC – Lalong

Sango, a serial governorship aspirant, is the current Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Plateau State.

The statement signed by the state Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr John Akans, said: "While we trust the security agents to be on top of the situation, we invite the families of those involved, friends, associates and our members at all levels to remain calm and continue to pray for their safety and quick return".

The kidnappers made contact with Sango's family yesterday afternoon and demanded N100 million ransome. He left Jos about 2pm and was heading for Abuja in preparation for the PDP national convention.

"Yes, it is true, the abductors of Hon Damishi T. Sango are demanding a ransom of N100m", he said.

He was not alone; he was with an elder statesman and one of the PDP elders in Plateau State, Chief Emmanuel Mangni. None of them have been released. "They used his phone to reach the family", the source said. "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". I woke up this morning with a lot of missed calls and when I called his personal assistant, he broke the news that Chairman was kidnapped on his way to Abuja.

He said, "The Jere Road has been a flashpoint and Kaduna State is a den of kidnappers".

"They told us that the vehicle was with them and there was no occupant".

His Kaduna State counterpart, ASP Mukhtar Aliyu, confirmed the kidnap took place along Kagarko-Jere Road in Kaduna State, stating that he received a distress call at about 7p.m. on Wednesday.

However, the Kaduna State Police Command has said special forces had been dispatched to rescue Sango and four others.
