The Commissioner of Police in the state, Bola Longe, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia.

Mr Longe told NAN that the permanent secretary was abducted by gunmen from his residence at Shabu, a suburb of Lafia at about 12:40 a.m., to an unkown destination.

According to the commissioner, the DPO in the area had already mobilised some officers and men who are on the trail of the fleeing abductors and their victims.

Mr Longe added that he had ordered his officers to comb the area to ensure the safe rescue of the victim and arrest of his abductors.

He also vowed that the command would not rest on its oars until the victim regains his freedom.

Mr Longe further said that the abductors were yet to establish any contact with the victim’s family.
