DSP Ramhan Nansel, the state’s police public relations officer, confirmed the incident to our correspondent in Lafia on Monday and said efforts were being made to save the chief and his wife without any injuries.

He said, “I wish to confirm that around 10pm of August 6 2023, a distress call was received by the Nasarawa State Police Command that the palace of the Chief of Gurku town located 10 kilometres away from Mararaba main town in a mountainous area, was invaded by men suspected to be kidnappers.

Upon receipt of the information, the Commissioner of Police, Maiyaki Baba, deployed a combined team of police operatives in collaboration with vigilante groups to the scene.

“Upon arrival, it was discovered that the Chief and his wife were abducted to an unknown destination. The surrounding bushes and the mountains were combed, but all efforts to get them proved abortive.

“The Commissioner of police has further deployed additional men of the tactical teams, the anti-kidnapping unit, and officers from the Karu area command to the scene to rescue the Chief and his wife unhurt.”
