APC chairman kidnapped in Ondo

The younger brother of the kidnapped Taraba State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Peter Jadiel, Fidelis, has narrated how he was abducted by hoodlums from his house.

The gunmen, he said, stormed the NLC chairman’s house in the early hours of Sunday and abducted him.

Fidelis, who spoke with newsmen, disclosed that the state NLC chairman was picked up in his house in Sunkani, Ardo-Kola Local Government Area of Taraba at about 12:55am.

According to him, the gunmen, in their numbers, forced their way into the house and took him away to an unknown destination at gunpoint.

The abduction of Mr. Jadiel is coming just two weeks after gunmen abducted and killed the Chairman of Ardo-Kola Local Government Area, Salihu Dovo.

Speaking further, Fidelis said: “My elder brother’s wife told me that the kidnappers came in numbers and forced their way into the house. They met him watching television in the living room and they forced him out of the house at gunpoint.

“There was no resistance because the kidnappers were heavily armed and were shooting indiscriminately while the operation lasted.”

Confirming the development, the acting Taraba State Police Command’s Spokesman, Reform Leha said: “Yes, we got the news of the abduction of the NLC chairman in the state and we have deployed our men in the general area to track the kidnappers.

“No arrest has been made yet, but our investigation team is trailing the kidnappers for possible rescue of the NLC Chairman.”

The family of the victim however said that the kidnappers are yet to establish contact with the family.
