The Taraba State Police Command on Friday confirmed that 10 people were abducted from the Uro Musa area of ​​Jalingo, the state capital.

Abdullahi announced that police were already tracking the kidnappers and called on anyone with useful information about the incident to contact police and other security agencies.

“Ten people were kidnapped at around 12:40 a.m. in Vro Musa,” he said.
