#KIDNAP: Gunmen abduct commissioner of Land in Kogi State

Gunmen, numbering about five, on Sunday kidnapped the Commissioner of Land in Kogi State, Mr. Steven Mayaki.

An eyewitness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told journalists in Lokoja that the five gunmen trailed and kidnapped the commissioner at his farm in Osara village, Adavi Local Government Area of the state on Sunday morning.

According to him, the gunmen stormed Mayaki’s farm in a Prado Jeep, forcibly picked up the commissioner and drove away the victim away to an unknown destination.

Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Adebayo Collins, confirmed the kidnap, adding that the command was doing everything possible to rescue the commissioner unhurt.

Collins said, “It is true the commissioner was kidnapped but the command is on top of the matter.”

The state High Court Judge, Justice Samuel Obayomi, who was kidnapped last Monday, has yet to be released.

The judge’s orderly, Mr. Usman Musa, was shot dead in the encounter.

The kidnappers later demanded N150m ransom before they could release the judge.
