The All Progressive Congress Chairman of Gamji Ward in the Bakura Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Sani Dangwaggo, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
Mohammed Sani, an indigene of the area, told newsmen that the gunmen, who came on motorcycles, went directly to the house of the APC chairman to pick him up, and take him to an unknown place.
He said, “Immediately they arrived at the village, they went straight to his house where they forcefully took him on one of their motorcycles and left.”
