The National Treasurer of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers Association, PTD, Abdullahi Haruna, also known as 63, has been kidnapped by gunmen in Kaduna.
Family sources say the kidnappers stormed Mr. Haruna’s residence near Bibal Hospital in Tudun Wada around 10 p.m. on Friday and whisked him away at gun point.
The kidnappers did not harm anyone else during the operation.
“They stormed the house and whisked him away at gun point in a waiting vehicle,” a sympathiser told PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday.
The Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Umar Shehu, who confirmed the incident, said the kidnappers were yet to make any demand.
“The kidnappers are yet to make contacts for any ransom. However, we have already commenced investigation,” he said.
