The Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Kogi State, Alhaji Wakili Damina, has been abducted reports states.

The state Secretary of MACBAN, Mr Adamu Abubakar, told newsmen in Lokoja on Tuesday that Damina was abducted on April 30 by some armed men dressed in army camouflage.

According to him, the abductors, numbering about eight, came in a white bus at about 12 noon to “forcefully” take away the Chairman from his house at Chikara village, Kogi Local Government.

Abubakar said he was informed of the incident about an hour later by the younger brother of Damina who claimed he witnessed the incident.
The Secretary said he immediately called the phone number of the missing Chairman, but it rang out without response.

He said Damina’s number was switched off when he repeated the call about an hour later.

“Since then, his lines are not reachable and all efforts to know his whereabouts proved abortive,” he said.

Abubakar said he immediately notified the state Commissioner of police of the development, adding that the state government was also informed through the Special Adviser on security matters to the governor, Mr Jerry Omodara.
