Retired police officer’s son and another abducted in Edo

Son of a retired police officer, Chief James Omafuaire, and another man were abducted while on their way from Ugbokuli to Ekiadolor in Ovia Northeast Local Government Area of Edo State, yesterday, March 23. 


Bernard Omafuaire and the other man were moving palm produce in a truck to a location when they were attacked by the kidnappers. The truck driver escaped into the bush.


The distraught father told The Nation;


“I have oil palm farm in the area. My son went for harvesting. He loaded the palm fruits into the truck, while he joined a motorbike, riding behind the truck. 

“The truck driver suddenly sighted the armed men, jumped out of the truck, and ran into the bush. My son and the bike rider were not aware of what was happening ahead, and they ran into the kidnappers, who took them away.

“I have been trying my son’s line, but it’s not going through. Nobody has contacted me. I called police control room, but I was told to make a formal report at Ekiadolor police station. I pray and hope that they should not be hurt. The kidnappers should please quickly release them unconditionally.”
