Former Nasarawa Deputy Governor Onje Gye-Wado has been abducted by gunmen from his home in the Gwagi Village area of Wamba Local Government Area in Nasarawa State.

A statement issued by DSP Ramhan Nansel, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the abduction on Friday in Lafia.

The PPRO said that the Commissioner of Police, Maiyaki Muhammed-Baba, had deployed tactical operatives to rescue the former deputy governor.

According to Nansel, the police received reports that the former deputy governor was kidnapped in the early hours of Friday.

Upon receiving the report, police operatives attached to Wamba Division swiftly moved to the scene, but the hoodlums had fled with the victim before their arrival.

Nansel added that the police commissioner had further mobilised reinforcement comprising police tactical teams, the military, vigilance groups, and local hunters to complement the ongoing search to rescue the hostage hale and hearty.

The police spokesperson also assured the public that the police would do everything possible to arrest the perpetrators of the act and make them face the law.

The former deputy governor, who served between 1999 and 2003 under the administration of Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu, was abducted from his residence in Gwagi Village, Wamba LGA.

The police have called on anyone with useful information that would aid the rescue of the erstwhile deputy governor to call the following telephone numbers: 09115629178, 09067877096, 08112692680 and 08104441179.

The abduction of the former deputy governor has caused widespread concern among residents of Nasarawa State, with many calling on security agencies to step up efforts to ensure his safe return.

The incident is the latest in a spate of kidnappings and attacks on prominent individuals in Nigeria.

In recent months, there has been an upsurge in kidnappings, with criminal gangs targeting schools, churches, and public places.

The Nigerian government has been criticised for its inability to tackle the security challenges in the country, with many calling for a more proactive approach to deal with the menace.
