Confirming the abduction, the Kogi State Chairman of the party, Hon. Abdulmumini Ibrahim, said the officers were on their way to Idah after attending the inaugural meeting of the state working committee of the party in Lokoja yesterday, when the incident happened.
He explained that the bus conveying the party leaders was waylaid by armed bandits along Idah road, explaining that passengers were robbed while the party leaders were taken to unknown destination.
