Polytechnic Lecturer Kidnapped By Gunmen In Delta State, Nigeria.

A four-man armed gang on Monday evening abducted one Mr. Tobi Benson, a senior lecturer with the Delta State-owned polytechnic,
Ogwashi-Uku, near Asaba.
It was reliably gathered that the armed men stormed the residence of the lecturer around Assemblies of God Church street, off Isah road, Ogwashi-Uku, after he packed his car in his garage and dragged him into their waiting car at gunpoint.
Sources said that the abductors had demanded his car key during which they pounced on him but he refused to surrender it to them, and they held him at gunpoint and dragged him into their waiting car.

Wife of the victim, Mrs. Tobi Benson, who spoke to our correspondent on telephone yesterday, said that the husband’s abductors had made contact with her through her cell phone and had demanded for N100 million ransom.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs. Celestina Kalu confirmed that the police were on top of the situation, disclosing that the assailants had left with their victim before the police arrived at the scene, assuring that the police would rescue the victim unhurt.

Mrs. Kalu appealed to members of the public with useful information that will help the police to rescue the victim.
It would be recalled that in the recent times the issue of kidnap had fast becoming a forgotten issue in Ogwashi-Uku community but gradually creeping back with fear of the unknown.
In a swift reaction, Aniocha South Local Government Council Boss Chief Isaac Anwuzie in a bid to stem the rising cases of crime within Ogwashi-Uku community and its environs, said he had conveyed several security meetings to fashion out ways with a view to checking the menace but to no avail.

But the Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr. (Mrs.) Edna Mokegwu who expressed shock over the incident however appealed to the victim’s abductors to release him unhurt, adding “Our appeal to the abductors is to release him unhurt and our prayer to the police is to regularly patrol the streets of Ogwashi-Uku or better still mount road blocks to help reduce security challenges confronting the community.”
