Suspected kidnappers have again abducted the father of the convicted former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye.

Plateau police spokesman, Ubah Ogaba, said security agents had been deployed to the Council Area to hunt for Pa Defwan Dariye’s abductors and ensure his release.

“As soon as we got the information, the Commissioner of Police led other officers to Bokkos. The security team detailed to go after the abductors have already swung into action and we hope the victim will be released soon,” he said.

A resident of the community, Bulus Gambo, told The PUNCH that the incident occurred early Thursday at the nonagenarian’s residence in Mushere, Bokkos Local Government Area of the state.

Pa Dariye was in February 2015 kidnapped at his residence.

He was rescued a few days later by vigilantes at the Nasarawa/Plateau boundary.
