Gunmen Abduct Accord’s Rivers Assembly Candidate
Ahead of the Governorship, and House of Assembly election, gunmen have kidnapped Chukwudi Ogbonna, the Accord Party (AP) candidate for Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni state constituency for Rivers state assembly.
Ifeaka Nwakiri, a relative of the politician, confirmed the abduction to newsmen on Tuesday morning.
TalkGlitz learned that Ogbonna was reportedly kidnaped while driving in his car at Rumuigbo, near Port Harcourt on Monday night when the gunmen forced him to stop and whisked him away with his car.
Nwakiri said the abduction is “politically motivated”, adding that Ogbonna was driving a white Mercedes car with a friend when he was kidnapped.
“The abduction has been reported to the police and other security apparatus,” he said.
“He was driving with his friend. They double-crossed him. His friend came out of the car to understand what was happening then the gunmen started shooting in the air so the young man had to scamper for his safety.
“Up till now, we don’t know his whereabouts.
