Taraba NLC chairman abducted again by unknown gunmen

The Taraba State chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Peter Jediel, has again been abducted by unknown gunmen.

The Chairman who was early this year kidnapped and later regained his freedom was again kidnapped at his residence located in Sunkani, the administrative headquarters of Ard-Kola local government council of the state.

Jediel was kidnapped a second time around his home seven months after an initial abduction.

The leader of the Southern Conference of the United Methodist Church Rev. Philip Micah Dopah, where Jediel worships, called on Tarabans to cry to God in one voice for the safe release of the labour leader who was abducted, Sunday, DAILY POST reports.

Some past labour leaders who spoke with DAILY POST expressed dismay at the manner kidnappers have continued to carry out their criminal acts in the state without being tracked down by security operatives.

Wondering why kidnapping has become rampant in the state, he said there was a need for the state government to as a matter of urgency collaborate with security operatives.

A closed associate of the family who also spoke with our correspondent lamented that the state government was handling security with kid gloves.
