Heavily armed gunmen have reportedly kidnapped the younger sister of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s wife.

According to reports, the kidnap took place in Asaba, the capital of Delta State.

Elizabeth, the younger sister of Dame Edith, was allegedly accosted at Temple Clinic Junction, along Awai Road near Government House on Monday night in Asaba and taken away in a waiting vehicle.  The victim was said to be driving a black SUV when the gang abducted her.

According to a report by Punchng, a source at the Government House in Asaba, who declined to be named, said the hoodlums were armed with dangerous weapons during the operation.

“They shot endlessly into the air to scare away people. Out of fear, the lady, who was ordered out of her vehicle, jumped into their waiting vehicle,” the source said.

The top government functionary on Wednesday said the incident has since thrown the governor, wife and her entire family into trauma. The source added that, for security reasons, the matter was not placed on red alert but that intelligence gathering had since commenced to rescue her unhurt.

 

The Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, Adeyinka Adeleke however claimed ignorance and denied any knowledge of the alleged abduction. Meanwhile, the source said no contact has been established with the family or any personality in government.
