NDDC official kidnapped by gunmen in Imo: A senior official of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Engr Kingsley Okorafor has been kidnapped close to his residence in Umuadara Umulogho autonomous community in Imo State.
AYOGENTV gathered that the dare-devil armed men abducted him in the early hours of Saturday morning, about three kilometers away from a military checkpoint in the area.
The traditional ruler of the community, Eze Patrick Uwalaka has already confirmed the latest development.
A source close to the family told AYOGENTV that the NDDC official attended a vigil for the late Eze Innocent Anyawu, the Traditional Ruler of Ndihu autonomous community in Obowo LGA, whose burial is slated for today, Saturday, July 16.
He said the victim was trailed after he left the vigil to his community, while his car was left behind.
The suspected kidnappers have not yet reached the family members for any ransom as of the time of filing this report.
Efforts to get the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) CSP Mike Abattam to react on the telephone failed.
