Gunmen abduct Nasarawa deputy gov’s driver



Gunmen have kidnapped Daniel Ogoshi, the driver of the Nasarawa State Deputy Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Akabe.

Our correspondent gathered that the driver was abducted from the residence of his friend around 9:30 pm, at Ombi 2, college of Agric, Kwandere road Lafia, on Tuesday.

His phone and car behind we left behind.

A family friend of the victim who confirmed the incident to our correspondent, said it was unfortunate, noting that he received a call around 9pm that his brother had been taken away by the kidnappers.

The family friend immediately alerted the police, and they rushed to the scene, but unfortunately, the kidnappers had already fled with the victim.

The media officer to the deputy governor, Chris Ehima, confirmed the incident, saying that he was informed about the situation but did not have adequate information on what had transpired.

He expressed shock over the incident and assured that the state government would do everything possible to secure the release of the kidnapped driver.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Ramhan Nansel, also confirmed the incident and said that the police were on top of the matter. He could not provide further details.

Our correspondent gathered that kidnapping has been prevalent in Nasarawa and government officials are not immune to this as well.

The abduction and release of the former deputy governor of the state few days ago and the most recent abduction of Ogoshi are indications.
