Bandits have kidnapped an official of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria in Plateau State, Pharmacist Kim Bot.

The PUNCH learnt that the union leader 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.

The Plateau State Chairman of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Kaneng Pam, could not be reached when contacted on the incident but a member of the association in the state confirmed the kidnap of the union official to The PUNCH in Jos on Thursday

The pharmacist who refused to mention his name identified the kidnap victim as the State Secretary of PSN in the state.


According to him, Mr Kim Bot was kidnapped along Lamingo Road Junction in Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

He added that the Lamingo Road to Jos University Teaching Hospital was becoming notorious for kidnapping as many people had been abducted along the road in recent times

The pharmacist said, “Yes, it’s true. The kidnap of Pharmacist Kim Bot happened last night. He has a pharmacy shop around 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 own car.

“Since then, we have not seen him”.

The pharmacist who condemned the abduction of their union official said the incident had been reported to the police.

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.
