Taraba State has been thrown into mourning following the death of a kidnapped lawmaker, Honourable Hosea Ibi. Late Ibi, the member representing Takum II Constituency in the Taraba State House of Assembly, was found dead after he was abducted by gunmen in December 2017.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr David Misal, confirmed to news men on Monday in Jalingo, the state capital that the lawmaker’s corpse had been found.
Misal, who said the corpse was found in Takum Local Government Area of the state, noted that the lawmaker must have died about three days before his body was discovered.
The State Police Command had earlier confirmed Ibi’s abduction by unknown individuals on December 31, 2017, in Takum where he was to usher in the New Year.
While the police said they were making efforts to rescue the legislator, no demand for ransom was made from any quarter.
