Gunmen kidnap Taraba NLC chairman, Peter Jediel.

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) chairman of the Taraba State chapter, Peter Jediel.

He was abducted at his residence in Sunkani, the headquarters of Ardo-Kola Local Government Council.

Confirming the incident to Channels Television via a telephone interview, the younger brother of the NLC chairman, Boniface Stephen revealed that the hoodlums shot sporadically into the air to scare residents before whisking Mr. Jediel away.

According to Stephen, they came in their number at about 12:00 am on Sunday, broke the NLC chairman’s gate, and forced their way into his compound.

For now, no call has come in from the abductors to know what their demands are.
