UPDATE: Plateau PDP Chairman’s abductors make contact, demand N100m ransom
The suspected gunmen who kidnapped Chief Damishi Sango, Chairman Plateau State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his son and four others ahead of the National Convention of the party have reportedly demanded for a ransom of N100 million for their release.
According to the report Sango, his son, Chief Emmanuel Mangni, the driver, an orderly and one other occupant of the abandoned Jeep were all alive as at press time.
Sango had been abducted by gunmen on his way to Abuja to make preparations for Plateau State delegates ahead of the PDP National Convention.
State Publicity Secretary, Mr. John Akans, who spoke with Journalists at the party secretariat, said the abductors spoke with the family and demanded for N100 million ransom.
He however said the party does not have such amount to doll out and call on party faithful’s to pray fervently for God’s intervention.
Akans said the unfortunate incident has demoralized Plateau party delegates who were expected to take off on Friday ahead of the convention in Abuja.
He said the state will participate in the convention but in low spirit if the Chairman and five others are not released before Saturday.
He called on the Inspector General of Police and other security agencies to take drastic measure and ensure that Hon. Sango, his son and four others are recover alive.
