The Police Command in Kaduna State on Tuesday, confirmed the kidnap of the immediate past Minister of Environment, Laurentia Mallam and her husband, Pius Mallam.

The Command’s spokesman, ASP Aliyu Usman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna that the two were abducted along Bwari/Jere axis on Kaduna-Abuja highway on Monday evening.

Usman said that the abductors took away the former minister and her husband, but spared their driver.

He assured that the Police was tracking down the perpetrators and would ensure the release of the victims unharmed.

Sources indicated that the abductors had reached out to the minister’s family demanding for ransom.

The command’s spokesman, however, said the police was not aware of any demand by the abductors.

“All what we are doing is to see that the victims are freed from captivity and returned to their home unhurt,” Usman said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
