A Gombe State House of Assembly member representing Gombe North, Hon Ahmed Jalo Ganga was, yesterday, abducted on his way to the mosque for his morning prayers at about 5am.

Reports indicated that two people on motorcycle attacked and forced him to enter a waiting car at Gandu Quarters, within Gombe metropolis in which they made good their escape.

An eyewitness account revealed that the Lawmaker was asked by his abductors to come near to one parked car, but he resisted and told them to allow him to come back from the Mosque.

When he tried to go, they shot in the air to scare the people around and forced him to enter the waiting car, abandoned the motorcycle and fled to unknown destination.

The Commissioner of Police, Gombe state command, Alhaji Muhammed Sule, said that the motorcycle used by the kidnappers was abandoned and has no plate number, and added that the command has commenced investigation to locate the whereabouts of the Lawmaker and fish out the perpetrators.
