The former minister, alongside his political ally, Emmanuel Magni; his son; orderly, and driver were abducted on Wednesday along Jere-Garkawa Road in Kaduna State, on their way to Abuja for the PDP national convention.
The unknown gunmen that masterminded the kidnap of the Plateau State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Damishi Sango, have slammed a ransom of N100 million on family members for his release.
"To say the least I am most saddened by this act of inhumanity to man that must be condemned totally".
The abductors were said to have abandoned the vehicle in which the quartet was travelling and forced them into their own vehicle.
"The family spoke with him and he assured them that he is safe".

The victims were on their way from Jos to Abuja to submit the list of delegates from the state to the party's National Secretariat, preparatory to the National Convention of the PDP slated for Saturday.
Tyopev urged members of the public with any useful information to contact the Kaduna or Plateau formation.
Speaking on the demand, Mr. Akans said: "We just received a message that they are demanding N100 million".
"It was the Police who called his family and intimated them of the incident because his son's phone was seen inside the vehicle".
