Bandits abduct Nasarawa lawmaker, taken to Kaduna forest

The member representing Nasarawa Central Constituency in the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Ismai Danbaba, has been abducted by gunmen.

The Chairman, House Committee on Information in the Assembly, Mohammed Omadefu, confirmed the development to our correspondent on Sunday in Lafia.

Omadefu explained that his colleague was kidnapped on Saturday while traveling to Jos, Plateau State, to attend a workshop for Nasarawa legislators.

He said the incident took place around a forest in the Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

“He was traveling and had already passed Andaha in Akwanga LGA, heading to the forest area in Sanga LGA of Kaduna State, when the kidnappers ambushed and took him away,” he added.

Danbaba came into the assembly last year on the platform of the APC through a bye-election.
