Eyewitnesses told Vanguard that “his car was badly battered with blood stain all over it. They (abductors) took away the car along with him but the car fell into a ditch which made them to abandon it and fled on motorcycles .

Meanwhile, a woman was allegedly hacked to death by unknown persons in an uncompleted building in Ibusa, a few days ago, with her private parts chopped off.
