Breaking: Gunmen Kidnap Taraba House of Assembly member, Bashir Mohammed
Unknown gunmen on Wednesday kidnapped a member representing Nguroje Constituency in the Taraba House of Assembly, Barr. Bashir Mohammed.
A family source who preferred anonymity said the Chairman House Committee on Information was picked up from his residence behind Dr. Jalo Eid prayer ground in Jalingo at about 1:45 am.
The source also disclosed that during the operation which lasted for about three hours, there was no interference by any security operative to stop their operation.
This happened barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari vowed to unleash the military against kidnappers.
Buhari said he would ensure the military eliminates kidnappers and bandits across the country.
He spoke during his meeting with the 36 state governors yesterday in Abuja.
“We are thinking very hard on the issue of kidnapping.
“We will make it possible for the military to get to the bandits and kidnappers and eliminate them,” Buhari had said.
As at the time of filing this report, the Police Public Relations Officer, David Misal is yet to confirm the abduction of the lawmaker.
