Asaba—High profile kidnapping in Delta State continued, yesterday, as gunmen kidnapped a cousin of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State, just as the governor was receiving the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar who was on a visit to the state.
The victim, identified as Pa Sam Uduaghan, is 70 years old.
Governor Uduaghan, however, did not betray any emotion as he participated in the interactive meeting which the IGP held with stakeholders at Government House, Asaba. Shortly after, the governor donated some patrol vans to the police and never mentioned the matter.
Reports about the kidnapping was still sketchy at press time, but the governor’s cousin was said to have been bundled into a waiting car in his Asaba residence.
State Police Command’s spokesman, Mr. Charles Muka, confirmed the story.
He said: “We are yet to get the details. I think we were hearing about the kidnap. I will get back to you later.”
