Daredevil kidnappers failed in their attempt to abduct the Delta State Head of Service, Mr. Okey Ofili on Sunday.

The kidnap attempt which occurred in Asaba left Mr. Ofili with gunshot injuries. He was taken to an undisclosed hospital.

Police say Mr. Ofili is in a stable condition and recuperating.

The abduction attempt occurred at Summit Road Junction on the Asaba – Benin Highway as the HoS was returning from Sunday Service about noon.

Describing the incident, a source told NAN that a car suddenly blocked Ofili’s vehicle when it turned into the road from the highway and a gunman from the car jumped out and ordered him out of his car.

Mr. Ofili was shot in the leg while he resisted the gunman order, reports say.

The source said the shooting attracted a team of policemen on patrol, who rescued the victim while his attackers sped off in their vehicle on sighting the patrol team.
