Gunmen Abduct Former Lawmaker

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a former Edo State House of Assembly member, Festus Edughele.

Edughele was kidnapped on Monday morning, January 9, 2023, in Ubiaja while travelling from Orhionmwon to Benin City, the state capital.

The ex-lawmaker was said to be on his way to Benin to board a plane to Abuja when he was abducted by the gunmen who took him into the bush.

A former Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Festus Ebea, who confirmed the incident, said Edughele intended to board the now suspended train service from Ubiaja to Abuja.

“He was kidnapped this morning in Ubiaja on his way from Orhionmwon to Benin. He had intended to take the train for Ubiaja but he could not do so since the train services had been suspended. The family is aware of his kidnap, the police division in that area has been informed and we hope action will be taken to rescue him.” Ebea said.
