PDP State Chair, Sango, son's abductors demand N100m

PDP raises alarm over plot by APC to disrupt convention, Atiku may not be allowed to vote

Ahead of PDP Nat'l Convention, gunmen kidnap party's state chairman, son, others

Chairman, who was kidnapped in Jere, Kaduna State on Wednesday evening, have demanded for N100 million as ransom for his release.

Sango was abducted while he was on his way to Abuja for PDP convention scheduled for Saturday, December 9.

Confirming incident, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP Plateau State John Akans called on the security agencies to ensure the unconditional and safe release of the State party chairman and his entourage. Damishi Sango has been kidnapped with five others along Jere village, Kaduna State.

Akans said the kidnappers have not contacted the family or PDP members.

The former minister was said to have left Jos around 2pm for Abuja for the party's National Convention when the abductors took him on the way.

Mapis, however, said that no one had contacted the family so far. From what they demanded, we are waiting to see whether they will come down from tomorrow. "I am on my way to Abuja". It was the security operatives that told the family that their breadwinner had been kidnapped because the vehicle that was abandoned drew the attention of the security operatives. When his personal assistant couldn't get him when he tried to reach him, he called his son's line and it was picked by one of the policemen. We want to know if they (abductees) are alive and in good condition.

Former Commissioner of Finance in the state, Davou Mang, and PDP supporters, stormed the PDP Secretariat, in Jos, at about 7:00a.m. on Thursday, expressing grief over the sad incident.

However, the Kaduna State Police Command has said special forces had been dispatched to rescue Sango and four others. "The man has been kidnapped and efforts are on to secure his freedom", he said.
