Armed men numbering about five have kidnapped a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Musa Danbaba, from his village in Kaduna State. The incident occurred about 1a.m. yesterday at Saya- Saya village in Ikara Local Government Area.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Aliyu Mukhtar, confirmed Danbaba’s abduction. He said: “Immediately we got the report, the Commissioner of Police, Austin Iwar, activated and instructed the Anti-Crime Squad to take all necessary measures to rescue the victim.
“Our men are already working, I promise that we will rescue him alive and bring the perpetrators of this crime to book.”
Aliyu, however, said that the police were yet to confirm the kidnappers’ motive. Meanwhile, it was learnt that the gunmen stormed Saya-Saya village and started shooting indiscriminately into the air to scare away the villagers. They drove straight to the residence of Danbaba, who is said to be a former state treasurer of the Kaduna State chapter of PDP, and forced their way into his room and dragged him out.
