Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a Permanent Secretary in the Taraba State Government in Jalingo, the State capital.
The Permanent Secretary, Mrs Susan Jonathan, was taken away from her residence near ATC axis of Jalingo in the early hours of Sunday.
Residents of Jalingo, in the past weeks, have been living under the fear of armed kidnappers.
Last week, the Deputy Registrar of the State University, Jalingo, was also abducted by gunmen from his official residence within the campus of the institution.
Also, gunmen invaded the residence of Nasarawa State Commissioner for Higher Education, Chief Clement Uhembe at the suburb of Lafia, the State capital.
The gunmen, who could not find the Commissioner at home, shot dead a university undergraduate found in the residence.
The Commissioner was said to have traveled to Port-Harcourt along with his family.
