But the Commissioner of Police in Edo, Mr Danmallam Mohammed, who confirmed the incident, said that Okolie was not abducted.

“It is probably a case of suicide because nothing was taken away from him and also from his vehicle.

“You know the rate of suicide is very high and his own cannot be an exception.”
