Unknown gunmen struck again in Rivers State, kidnapping the one of the aides to the State Governor, Mr. Freddy Ndigbara.
Ndigbara, who is an anchorman for Governor Rotimi Amaechi events inside and outside Government House, Port Harcourt, was whisked away on Sunday by hoodlums in Kaani Community, Khana Local Government Area.
It was gathered that Ndigbara, who is popularly called Freddie by Government House workers, was accosted and forced into a waiting car by the gunmen during a ward rally organised by the All Progressives Congress in the area.
Oblivious of the danger lying ahead of him, the kidnap victim was said to have travelled from Port Harcourt to his home town to be part of the rally.
The hoodlums, according to an eyewitness, had stormed the rally with a red Toyota Highlander sports utility van, made a quick search for their target before forcing him into the car.
It was gathered that the organisers were planning to arrange the canopy for the rally when the kidnappers struck.
The PUNCH learnt that Ndigbara’s abductors immediately sped off to an unknown destination, just as members of the party in Kaani, Ward Six, took cover to avoid being shot by the suspected kidnappers.
Speaking on the incident, a former Chief Press Secretary to Amaechi, Mr. Blessing Wikina, said a group of gunmen, suspected to be thugs working for the Peoples Democratic Party, invaded the rally and took Ndigbara away.
State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ahmad Mohammad, confirmed the incident, adding that effort had already been intensified to ensure that the governor’s aide was released.
