The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Okene Local Government Area of Kogi State, Musa Adelabu, have been abducted by unknown gunmen dressed in military uniform.
This was disclosed in a statement on Sunday by the state chairman of the party, Sam Uhuotu, adding that the abduction of Adelabu was an indication that Kogi State was not safe to live in.
According to him, the gunmen dressed in military uniform invaded the house of the local government party chairman and whisked him away at about 1am on Saturday.
Describing the invasion and abduction as one too many, the state chairman lamented that members of the PDP in the state in the last week had been consistently harassed by men dressed in security uniforms.

In his reaction, the state Police Public Relations Officer, William Aya, however denied knowledge of the abduction, saying no one reported anything of such.
“It is only when we get such a report that we will treat it as an issue, but for now, it’s not an issue,” Aya said.
