Gunmen Kidnap APC Adamawa Chairman Hours Before Governorship Rally

Hamisu Mijinyawa, Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Demsa Local Government Area, Adamawa State, has been kidnapped.

Mijinyawa was kidnapped 1:00am Wednesday, ahead of the flag-off of the Presidential/Governorship campaign in Demsa Local Government Area.

Governor Jibrilla Bindow is due to arrive Demsa any moment from now for the flag-off of the campaign.

Mark Dauda, an official of APC in the state, confirmed the kidnap, saying the kidnappers are demanding a ransom of N20 million to release their victim.

“The Chairman was picked in his house in Demsa around 1:00am last night, but we’re talking, we’re negotiating his release,” he said.

“They’ve demanded N20 million ransom, that’s all I can tell you for now.”
