Four suspected kidnappers, yesterday, abducted a 45-year-old Warri-based businesswoman and housewife, Mrs. Baby Obiokor in Ogbe-Udu, Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
Mrs. Obiokor, who hails from Okwagbe in Ughelli South Local Government Area, was reportedly traveling to her country home with her sister, Mrs. Patience Mode, in a Honda SUV when the incident occurred at about 10.00 am.
The gangsters, who operated in a red-coloured Toyota car were apparently trailing the victim and they intercepted her at Ovwodokpokpor Junction, along Udu-Ekakpamre Road, yanked her sister off the vehicle and sped off with her towards Owhorde.
Her husband, Mr. Obiokor, reported the incident at the Ovwian Police station, yesterday, but at the time of filing this report, the kidnappers were yet to make contact for ransom with the family.
The victim’s phone was however switched off, an indication that they were still in transit, looking for a hideout to keep her before demanding for ransom.
Contacted on phone, Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Famous Ajieh, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, said he was not aware of the incident, promising to get in touch with the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of the area.
