The gunmen who shot him before abducting him, burnt his country home at Imoko community in Arondizuogu area of the LGA.

The source said ” the Sole Administrator of Ideato North was kidnapped last night together with two others after burning his house at Imoko community in Arondizuogu. They shot him on his leg before taking him away. This is a man who came back from a hosp

ital recently. I am devastated now.”

Another source who confirmed the development decried the spate of insecurity going on in the area.

He said “the house of Ideato North SOLAD was burnt down and he was kidnapped with bullet wound on his leg as I heard.

“I have been making this report since last year and early this year till now no single presence of the police anywhere in Arondizuogu and no single arrest. We are now at the mercy of God. “

This came less than a week after the country home of the spokesperson of Coalition of United Political Parties, Ugochinyere Imo, was attacked at Akokwa community in the Ideato North LGA, with three persons killed and about 33 vehicles razed.

Also, a man who was about to wed was same last week killed with his brother at Arondizuogu in the Ideato North LGA.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the police in the state, Henry Okoye, said he would verify and get back to our correspondent but he had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
