It has just been revealed that an army officer, his wife, and their two children had been kidnapped along Wukari-Ibbi Road in Taraba State, Nigeria just a few minutes ago, April 28, 2019.
The officer, according to Daily Trust, was reportedly dressed in civil attire and was traveling in his personal car with his wife and two children when he was abducted by unknown gunmen at Ibiwa village in Ibbi Local Government Area of Taraba state.
According to the newspaper, sources in Wukari and Ibbi who preferred to be anonymous said that the officer attached to Army Barracks Takum was traveling from Takum to Ibbi town when the gunmen blocked the road at Ibiwa village and took him and his family to an unknown location.
The source said soldiers from Takum and police from Wukari are now searching the forests between Wukari and Ibbi town to rescue the army officer and his family. The police public relations officer Taraba state command, DSP David Misal, was quoted to have said that he had contacted the DPO Ibbi and Wukari area command over the issue but they have not replied him yet. ”I called the DPO Ibbi but he has not replied my inquiry over the matter. I’m now waiting for his response,” DSP Misal said.
