Hon. Osewu explained that the victim was kidnapped in the early hours of Saturday when he was on his way to Okpata community in Doma LGA to see a friend.

Mr. Jibrin Ede, the Councilor representing Agbashi Electoral Ward in Nasarawa State’s Doma Local Government Area, has allegedly been abducted by unknown gunmen.

Hon. John Osewu, a member of the State House of Assembly representing Doma South Constituency and the victim’s elder brother, made the revelation while speaking with reporters on Saturday in Lafia.

Hon. Osewu clarified that the victim was abducted in the early hours of Saturday while on his way to see a friend in Okpata village, Doma LGA.

“My younger brother was kidnapped this morning when he was going to see his friend in the Okpata community. Now the kidnappers are demanding N10 million and I don’t know how to get such an amount of money.

“When I spoke with the victim, he was crying and complained that his legs are swollen up because of the distance he trekked with the kidnappers into the forest,” he said.

When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ranham Nansel, said the Command was yet to get an official report on the matter.
