Gunmen have kidnapped the Assistant Controller of Corrections, Niger State Correctional Centre, Minna, ACC. Abdulrahamam Ibrahim Gelele.

It was learnt that the Gelele had been kidnaped since April 17, 2024.

According to sources close to the correctional centre, the officer was abducted along Ilorin-Minna Road but was not known if he was going out or coming back to Minna.

The incident has been shrouded in secret with the belief that he would regain his freedom soon but after over a week it has become the talk in the headquarters of the centre.

It was said that the kidnappers made contact with family of the victim once and since then have cut off all communication with either his office or the family.

A statement apparently confirming the incident quoted the Controller of Corrections, Nigerian Correctional Service, Niger State, CC. Mohammed Hamisu Isa: “On behalf of the officers and men of the command solicit your prayers for his safe release and freedom from the captives please”

The statement was signed by CPRO, CSC. Rabiu Mohammed Shuaibu.
