Kidnappers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman in Plateau state, Damishi Sango, are demanding N100 million ransom for his release.
It was gathered that the kidnappers reached out to Sango’s family on Thursday afternoon, demanding for the ransom.
“Those holding him called this afternoon. They used his phone to reach the family,” the source told The Cable.
Recall that unknown gunmen abducted Sango, alongside four others along Kaduna/Abuja expressway.
They were on their way from Jos to Abuja in preparations for the PDP national convention billed for December 9.
This happened along Jere Road in Kaduna state.
The Police have confirmed the incident and said they had swung into action.
“The inspector-general of police’s (IGP’s) anti-kidnapping team and the special tactical squad has swung into action to rescue the victims and arrest the hoodlums,” spokesman of the Kaduna command, Aliyu Mukhtar said.
