It was gathered that Hon. Dakogol was abducted in the early hours of Thursday, May 26, the day her party conducted the primaries.
The victim was on her way to meet with delegates of the party ahead of the primaries scheduled to hold in Kwalla town of Qua’an Pan LGA when she was kidnapped.
“The Honourable was to see a delegate on Wednesday but they gave her 5:30 am of Thursday for her to meet them,” a source from the area said.
“She left alongside her brother to Goeragas and they could not locate the house, her brother came out of the car and went into the community to inquire. He left her inside the car, but to his greatest shock did not see her when he came back. Her phones were all inside the car but he could not see her,” the source added.
