Sango, and his entire entourage were said to be on their way to Abuja ahead of the PDP's December 9 national convention.

The state Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr John Akans told reporters that the chairman left Jos on Wednesday afternoon for the national convention when the incident occurred.

The incident was said to have occured while they were in transit from Jos to Abuja in preparations for the party's national convention.

China's air force drills warn US, South Korea
Officials in Pyongyang have described the exercises as the US president " begging for a nuclear war". According to him, the exercise was also attended by the South Korean air force F-15Ks and KF-16s.

Sango was abducted alongside a one-time factional state Chairman of the PDP in Pateau State, Emmanuel Mangni.

"The family spoke with him and he assured them that he is safe". From what they demanded, we are waiting to see whether they will come down from tomorrow. I woke up this morning with a lot of missed calls and when I called his personal assistant, he broke the news that Chairman was kidnapped on his way to Abuja. It was the security operatives that told the family that their breadwinner had been kidnapped because the auto that was abandoned drew the attention of the security operatives.

Earlier on Thursday, Aliyu Mukhtar, spokesman of the Kaduna command, told TheCable that the police received a distress call around 6pm on Wednesday.

"On reaching the vehicle, they found a telephone belonging to his son in the auto". We want to know if they (abductees) are alive and in good condition.
