The Delta Police Command has confirmed the abduction of four Itsekiri leaders and some officials of Elcrest, an indigenous firm, by suspected militants in Delta.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the abduction to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Warri, Delta, on Friday.
“The police backed by the military are on the trail of the hoodlums,” Aniamaka said.
Maj. Abubakar Abdullahi, Coordinator, Joint Media Campaign Centre of Operations Delta Safe (OPDS), also said that OPDS was on top of the situation.
A reliable source in Warri said that the victims were kidnapped in a community in Benin River in Warri North Local Government Area at 5:00p.m. on Tuesday.
The source said that the victims were returning to Warri from Ureju Community when they were abducted.
“The community leaders had gone to show the officials of Elcrest, a location for the firm’s proposed free medical outreach.
“The kidnappers are demanding a ransom of N36 million from the company and also requesting their inclusion in the company’s payroll,” the source said.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
