The Police Command in Taraba on Monday confirmed the death of Mr Hosea Ibi, a member representing Takum 1 constituency in the Taraba House of Assembly, in the hands of kidnappers.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, ASP David Misal, made the confirmation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jalingo.

Misal said the body of the lawmaker was found on Monday afternoon along Takum – Kashimbilla road.

“Yes, it has been confirmed, the body has been found this afternoon at Kwari, along Takum –Kashimbilla road,” he said.

Dr Mark Useni, a former Speaker and member representing Takum 11, described the death as shocking.

Useni noted that the people of Takum who were eagerly waiting for his release had been thrown into mourning this afternoon.

“It is a very sad news to the people of Takum and the entire state,” he said.

NAN reports that Ibi was kidnapped on Dec. 30, 2017 in Takum during the Yuletide festivities.

He was picked at gunpoint and whisked away by his abductors on a motorcycle. (NAN)
