According to the news-----------------------------“He was to proceed on official assignment the next morning to the southern part of the State when some uniformed men fully clad in Army camouflage numbering about ten (10) abducted himself and four other vehicles including a Toyota Camry, a Jeep, the vehicle of the SSG an End-of- Discussion and a Mercedez Benz that were forced on a convoy to drive and proceed straight to Delta State that night.
“It should also be noted that the SSG was a victim of circumstance and that the operation was not targeted at him or any agent of the State Government.
“He was only discovered to be an SSG along the way courtesy of his identification card. He was abducted and was headed straight to Delta State where he was until his release. He was received in Benin and returned to Kaduna by our security operatives notably members of the SSS hale and hearty.”
Soon after Alhaji Sani had read the statement, Mr. Yayok was sandwiched into the Deputy Governor’s official jeep and both the SSG and Mr Yakowa drove to his house.
