Bandits kidnap Plateau pharmacist


Bandits have kidnapped the Plateau State Secretary of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Kim Bot.

The PUNCH learnt that the pharmacist was driving home on Wednesday night after closing from his office when the bandits blocked his vehicle and whisked him away to an unknown destination.

Efforts to reach the Plateau State Chairman of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Kaneng Pam, for comment, were unsuccessful as his mobile line did not connect. But a member of the association in the state, who refused to give his name, confirmed the kidnap of the union official to The PUNCH in Jos on Thursday.

He noted that Bot was kidnapped along the  Lamingo Road  Junction in the Jos North Local Government Area.


The pharmacist said, “Yes, it’s true. The kidnap of Pharmacist Kim Bot happened last night. He has a pharmacy shop around the Lamingo area. From what I heard, he was driving in his Honda Hennessy gold colour car around 8pm on Wednesday when the kidnappers attacked him along Lamingo Junction and took him away in his car. Since then, we have not seen him.”

The spokesman for the Plateau State Police Command, Alabo Alfred, did not respond to calls and text messages when our reporter tried to contact him for a reaction.
