The union leader of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), Mr Kim Bot, has been abducted by gunmen.
The pharmacist was reportedly driving home on Wednesday night after closing from his office when he was ambushed by the assailants.
A pharmacist who pleaded anonymity confirmed the incident saying Bot was whisked away to an unknown destination by the bandits. He identified the kidnap victim as the State Secretary of PSN in the state.
The PUNCH quoted the source as saying that Kim Bot was kidnapped along Lamingo Road Junction in Jos North Local Government Area of the state.
He added that the Lamingo Road to Jos University Teaching Hospital was becoming notorious for kidnapping as many people had been abducted along the road in recent times.
The pharmacist said, “Yes, it’s true. The kidnap of Pharmacist Kim Bot happened last night. He has a pharmacy shop around the Lamingo area.
“From what I heard, he was driving in his Honda Hennessy gold colour car around 8 pm on Wednesday when the kidnappers attacked him along Lamingo Junction and took him away in his own car.
“Since then, we have not seen him”.
The pharmacist who condemned the abduction of their union official said the incident had been reported to the police.
The media platform also confirmed that the Plateau State Chairman of the PSN, Kaneng Pam, was unreachable on Thursday after several attempts to hear from him as of the time of filing the report.
Also, the Spokesman for the Plateau state police Command, Alabo Alfred, reportedly did not respond to calls and text messages sent to him.
