GUNMEN have reportedly abducted five employees of the College of Education, Agbor, in the Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on Sunday, along Olije-Igbanke, on the victims’ way from the wedding ceremony of the daughter of the former Registrar of the institution, Oscar Osagiede.
It was gathered that Dr and Mrs Ughamadu, Mr and Mrs Kent Nosier and Meschack Iwekaogwu were allegedly whisked away to unknown place by the kidnappers.
Community source said the hoodlums usually surfaced from their bush hideout, brandishing their weapons and forcing their victims out of their vehicles.
He said, “The victims thought that it was a robbery operation only to be led into the bush. They were coming from wedding when the kidnappers blocked their vehicle and took them away.”
The Police Public Relations Officer Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday, said the crime occurred between Delta and Edo boundary, but added that the part where the incident happened was in Edo State.
