From Umar Dankano, Yola.
The Director of Litigation attached to Adamawa State Ministry of Justice,Mr.Samuel Yaumanda and three others have been abducted at their homes in the late hours of Monday night.
An impeccable source who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent in Yola Tuesday that the incident occurred at Sangere Quarters of Girei Local Government Area where the victims were forced out of their homes individually around 11: 30 pm before they were whizzed away to undisclosed location.
Our source said the gunmen stormed the area around 11:30pm Monday, and abducted the director, his neighbour who is a principal and two others.
“The gunmen apparently know the house of the victim as they went directly to his house and forcefully snatched him. They also kidnapped his neighbor who is a principal as well as two others,” the source said.
Confirming the development, spokesman of the Command, DSP Sulaiman Nguroje said the assailants stormed the resident of the director, at Sangere in Girei local government, and abducted him as well as three others.
“ We got a report that one director with the Ministry of Justice was kidnapped. On reaching there, we learnt that three others were also kidnapped.
“We have deployed men of operation Farauta to comb the area and are currently on the trail of the kidnappers,” Nguroje said.
Kidnapping for ransom has in recent times gained prominence in Adamawa State despite the effort of the police in tackling the menace.
The police have last week paraded 319 criminals including 106 kidnappers as well as armed robbers in its effort to rid the state of violent crimes.
