Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state has said that he was working closely with the Kaduna State Government and security operatives to have the state’s chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Damishi Sango, released.
Sango, a former Minister of Sports, and four others, were abducted by some unknown persons on Wednesday evening, at Jere-Kaduna on their way to Abuja from Jos.
Lalong, in a statement signed by his Director of Press, Emmanuel Nanle, on Friday, said that the state governments were working for their unconditional and immediate release.
“I received with deep concern the news of the abduction of Hon. Damishi T. Sango, Chairman, People’s Democratic Party, Plateau State, and four others at Jere, Kaduna State on their way to Abuja. To say the least I am most saddened by this act of inhumanity to man that must be condemned totally,” he said.
Lalong while sympathising with members of the families of the kidnap victims and the PDP over their traumatising experience, also called for calm.
