Gunmen numbering 10 have invaded the house of a Senior Lecturer with the department of political science, Federal University of Lafia, Chief Clement Uhembe, and kidnapped him to an unknown destination.
The kidnappers have, however, demanded for 30 million naira as ransom.
Findings indicated that the victim is the immediate past Commissioner for Higher Education in Nasarawa State.
Speaking with journalists, the wife of the victim, Mrs. Amarya Uhembe, said the abductors invaded their residence and broke into one of their apartments where her husband was resting after returning from work, and took him away.
“They came at about 8:30pm and started knocking forcefully on the door while my husband was in the inner room.
“I moved close to the door to see who was knocking only to discover that they were heavily armed men
“When I noticed that they were armed men, I quickly tried to close the door, shouting for help before my husband came to join me in the struggle to close the door, even as they were dragging to force themselves into the parlour.
“My husband rushed to the door and we succeeded in closing it but the gunmen kept pushing until they succeeded in using some objects to break the doors and wall to gain entrance”, she narrated.
She revealed that the gunmen later allowed her husband access to his mobile phone to communicate the family about their demand for the sum of N30 million ransom.
