Three leaders of the Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance in Kogi State have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
The abducted party chieftains are Ademu Kadir from Idah, Alilu Omo and Ocholi from Igalamela-Odolu.
Confirming the abduction, the Kogi State Chairman of APDA, Abdulmumini Ibrahim, said the officers were on their way to Idah after attending the inaugural meeting of the state working committee of the party in Lokoja on Thursday.
He explained that the bus conveying the party leaders was ambushed by bandits along Idah Road.
He said passengers were also robbed while the trio were taken to an unknown destination.
Abdulmumini said he had called the Commissioner for Police, Kogi State Command, Ali Janga, to report the incident. He said he was assured that the police command would do her best to secure their release.
Efforts to get the state Commissioner of Police, Ali Janga, to confirm the report were abortive as he did not pick calls.
