The Police Public Relations Officer Nasarawa State Command, ASP Ramhan Nansel, who confirmed the incident, however, stated that no passenger was abducted.
He said, “Around 13:50 hours, we received information that a vehicle was abandoned at Buga Gwari in Gadabuke of Toto Local Government Area.
“We sent our men to the scene and they recovered a Rover Salon Car with Registration Number NTT 265AA and two mobile phones were discovered inside the vehicle, but the whereabouts of the occupants were not known.
“And somebody has recognised the vehicle that it belongs to his brother who left Nasarawa for Gadabuke this morning, so the vehicle was kept in the station.”
