A lawmaker representing Nasarawa Central Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Ismail Danbaba, has been kidnapped by gunmen while traveling for a training in Kaduna.
Danbaba was abducted on Saturday evening while traveling to Jos, Plateau state capital for an official function.
The development was confirmed by Hon Mohammed Omadefu, Nasarawa Assembly Committee Chairman, on Information, on Sunday.
According to PUNCH, Omadefu explained that his colleague was kidnapped on Saturday evening while traveling to Jos to attend a workshop for Nasarawa State legislators.
He disclosed that the incident occurred in the forest in Sanga local government area of Kaduna state.
“He was traveling and had already passed Andaha in Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, heading to the forest area in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State when the kidnappers ambushed him and took him away,” he said.
Omadefu who represents Keana constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress said that the kidnappers have made contact with the Assembly but yet to demand ransom.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ramhan Nansel, said the kidnap occurred in an area in Kaduna State but stated that he would not be able to react to it since it did not fall under his jurisdiction.
