This is coming barely three days after parents of the chairman of Ogbia Local Government Area of the state, Mr Festus and Mrs Ebiye Ibegu, were kidnapped from their home in Oloibiri.

Eyewitness account says the hoodlums did not spare much time in their operation, they picked their target and sped off towards Bomadi in Delta State: “The abductors were about five and heavily armed. The old woman was sitting outside. She was about going into the house on hearing the sound of gunshots when they seized her and took her away into their speedboat and headed towards Bomadi in Delta State,” the eyewitness relayed.

Meanwhile, son of the victim and Leader of the state House of Assembly, Honourable Akpe, said he was yet to hear from either his mother or her kidnappers. Also the spokesman of the state police command, Fidelis Odunna (DSP), said men of the state command had been sent on the trail of the hoodlums.
