Unknown gunmen have kidnapped Chief Joseph Tsegba, father of former Speaker (pro tempore), of the Benue State House of Assembly, Terngu Tsegba.
The senior Tsegba was abducted around 8 pm on Saturday from his home in Adekaa, Gboko town, Benue State.
A relative of the victim, Mr. Terfa Ape, who confirmed the development, pleaded with the abductors to release the old man as he needs to take his medication.
Chief Tsegba is the kindred head of Anzua Ward, Gboko Local Government.
It was learnt that the abductors are yet to contact the family while efforts to reach the Benue Police Command spokesperson, Moses Yamu, were unsuccessful.
