Gunmen broke into the residence of a medical doctor at ZakiBiam rural town in Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State and abducted him.
Residents who gave the name of the doctor as, Dr. Alex Terkimbir Igyemwase, said he owned the Hope and Maternity Clinic Hospital in ZakiBiam.
A resident simply identified as, Jack, said the medical director was abducted at about 8pm on Tuesday.
Jack said the doctor was abducted alongside his son who was later released unhurt.
It was gathered that the abductors are yet to open discussion with the family of their captive at the time of doing this report.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP. Catherine Anene, did not respond to calls or texts messages put through her telephone to comment on the matter.
However, Commander of Operation ZENDA,a special police squad operating in the state, CSP Justin Gberyindyer, told journalists in Makurdi that there was an information that some people wanted to kidnap two people in the town.
Gberyindyer who said he was not aware of the kidnap of the medical doctor stated that the earlier information he had was plan to kidnap two people in the town.
“As I speak to you now we are in the hot spot in Zaki Biam when we heard of the information we spread around but they didn’t come. It is unfortunate that the locals in the area always give information to the criminals of the presence of security men,” he said.
