Council boss expresses concern over whereabout of kidnap victims

The Chairman of Sardauna local government council area of Taraba State, Oliver Wubon, has raised an alarm over the whereabout of six persons kidnapped last week in the council.

The chairman, it would be recalled, had earlier raised alarm over the activities of hoodlums in the council, especially along Mayo Selbe and Mai Samari road, which he described as flashpoints for armed bandits.

The six kidnapped persons, whose whereabouts have remained unknown, according to the chairman, were all abducted along Mayo Selba and Mai Samari road last Wednesday.

Speaking with Journalist on Saturday in Jalingo, he expressed sadness that no information on the whereabout of the victims have been made available to the council or their family members by the kidnappers.

Wondering why the kidnappers have not deemed it fit to call and demand for ransom, he said “since the incident, no information on their (victims) whereabout has been received. ”

Vowing not to relent pending when the whereabout of the victims are known, the council in collaboration with all the security agencies, he said, will continue to work round the clock to checkmate hoodlums’ activities in the council.

Pleading with the people not to relent in making available relevant information that would lead to the arrest of the hoodlums to security agencies, he said the council would also assist security agencies where necessary.

Security personnel had been drafted to keep watch on the roads at the time of filing this report.
