….As abductors disguise as mourners to abduct ex-female LG boss

BY AUSTIN OGWUDA, Asaba

IT was  double tragedy for  one-time chairman of Ndokwa East Local Government Council in Delta State, Mrs. Mary Chidi,  following her abduction on Friday morning by unknown gunmen at her Asaba residence.

The  woman, who is presently a member of the state Waste Management Board,   was still mourning  her eldest son  who died and was buried two days when she was abducted.

The abductors had disguised as some of the sympathizers thronging her residence to condole her over the death of the son. But family members  were scared stiff when the abductors who were initially shedding tears suddenly pulled out their guns and took her away  from her Government Reserved Area (GRA) residence in Asaba that  Friday  at about 10am to an  unknown place.

No contact has been made by the abductors with the family of the victim  at the time of this report  but the state police command  public relations officers (PPRO), Mr. Charles Muka, confirmed the incident, saying “we are on top of it”.
