Armed security men on Thursday night arrested the governorship candidate of Labour Party in Plateau State, Amb. Yohanna Margif.
Margif who was arrested in Abuja allegedly by security personnel from Plateau State Police Command was taken to Apo Police Station where he was being detained at press time.
Deputy Governorship candidate of Labour Party, Dung Jack who was together with the party’s candidate, confirmed the arrest.
“I was together with the governorship candidate in Abuja at about 7pm on Thursday moving on the highway when we saw some armed police officers who blocked our way and asked us to stop.
“When we stopped, they went away with the governorship candidate and left us there. I thought it was kidnappers that have abducted him and I decided to go to the nearest police station to report but I was told that he has been taken to Apo Police station.
“I moved to the station and found him there. He is safe, but we don’t know why he was arrested. I was told that it was the police from Plateau State Police Command that carried out the arrest, we are waiting to know why he was arrested,” he stated.
