Gunmen in parts of Plateau State have kidnapped the paramount ruler of Mhiship, HRH Sunday Dajeb, in the Pankshin local government area of Plateau State.
A source close to the palace told NIGERIAN TRIBUNE that the incident occurred in the early hours of Thursday while the traditional ruler was still in bed.
According to the source, the kidnappers, who arrived at the community at about 4 am, terrorized the community by shooting indiscriminately into the air before proceeding to the palace of the paramount ruler.
He was abducted at gunpoint in the presence of his family members and whisked away on a motorcycle to an unknown destination.
When contacted, the spokesman of the Plateau State Police Command, DSP Alfred Alabo, said the command has commenced an investigation into the unfortunate incident while efforts are ongoing to rescue the traditional ruler.
