Gunmen reportedly kidnap ex-Education Secretary in Benue

A former Education Secretary of Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State, Mr Sunday Ajeh has been reportedly kidnapped by gunmen and whisked to an unknown destination.

DAILY POST gathered that the incident happened at about 6:30 pm when the victim was returning from the burial ceremony at nearby Otukpa village on Wednesday.

According to the source, “we learnt that the armed men stopped him after barricading the road at Agada Hill just a stone’s throw from Adum Oko village in the Orokam axis of the LGA.

“They took him away and abandoned his vehicle at the roadside. People only discovered that he had been kidnapped when they saw his abandoned car and the manner in which it was abandoned without any trace of him.

“An alarm was immediately raised and the youths of the area embarked on a search for him, but as we speak no one knows who took him and where they took him to.

“Even as we speak, his abductors have not established contact with his family; no one knows the motive of those who kidnapped him and they have also not demanded ransom from his family members.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent, SP, Catherine Anene said she was yet to receive details of the incident.

The Ogbadibo axis of the state has become notorious for the abduction of commuters and travelers by armed men who usually takeover major roads in that axis in broad daylight and kidnap their victims for ransom.
