The police have confirmed the abduction of Chairman of Delta chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mr. Goodluck Ofobruku, on Saturday night in Asaba.
DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, the spokesperson of the state Police Command, who confirmed the incident to journalists on Sunday in Asaba, said that Ofobruku was a victim of armed robbery before he was kidnapped at gunpoint.
He said: “The incident was a case of armed robbery and abduction. The gunmen were robbing in the street when the labour leader was driving out of his home.
“They intercepted his car and forcefully abducted him and took him to the nearby bush.”
Onovwakpoyeya, however, said that the command had dispatched its operatives to comb the bushes and rescue the NLC chairman.
Meanwhile, Mr. Innocent Ofoyade, the Secretary of NLC in the state, told newsmen on Sunday that Ofobruku was driving in the congress’s official Toyota Sienna space bus before he was kidnapped, NAN reports.
He said: “The chairman was on his way out that night to get some drugs when the incident occurred. He was intercepted by the hoodlums along his street and taken away.
“We learnt this morning (Sunday) that the abductors have yet to establish contact with the victim’s family.”
