Taraba Assembly Holds Last Plenary, Remembers Departed Members

 

The Wife of the Taraba state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress Mrs. Abigail Peter has been kidnapped.

She was abducted at the early hours of today by unknown gunmen who stormed the house shooting sporadically to scare neighbours.

Confirming the incident to channels television, the NLC Chairman said it was a thing of a shock to him as they all scampered for safety.

According to him, they whisked her away to an unknown destination.

He adds that though he has made a written submission to the police on the incident, the kidnappers are yet to contact the family on what their demands are.

Similarly, one Mr. Emeka Okoronkwo, the owner of ‘Our Nations Bakery’, who is a neighbour to the NLC Chairman was also kidnapped.

His kidnap was shortly after the wife of the NLC Chairman was picked.

Mr. Emeka’s gateman was also shot in the leg and is currently receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre Jalingo.

All calls to the Police public relations officer mister David Misal as at the time of filing in this report to confirm the incident proved abortive as he neither picked his calls nor responded to messages.
