He said, "Yes, our chairman, Chief Damishi Sango, and five other persons, including his son, driver and a chieftain of PDP in Plateau State were kidnapped by unknown gunmen on Wednesday evening".

"When the Personal Assistance to the Chairman called the mobile phone of the son who was in the vehicle to find out if they had arrived Abuja, the DPO of Jere Police division picked the call and said the phone was found inside an abandoned jeep parked along the road and they suspected that the occupants have been kidnapped".

Sango, it was further learnt was on his way to Abuja to attend his party's national convention slated to hold on Saturday, December 9.

A family member, Mr Jonathan Mapis, who spoke on the issue, said that the victims were abducted "around 5.30 p.m".
