Gunmen kidnap Commissioner’s wife in Delta

Gunmen have reportedly abducted Theresa Sakpra, wife of the Delta State Commissioner for Special Duties Governor’s Office, Chief Henry Sakpra.

Mrs Sakpa was whisked away by the gunmen around Ekete Inland Junction, along the DSC Expressway in Udu Local Government Council of Delta State.

The victim was said to be on her way home from her shop over the weekend after dropping one of her aides, when she was abducted along the Expressway and whisked to an unknown destination.

At the moment, the abductors had not contacted the Sakpra family for any ransom.
Meanwhile, youths under the aegis of Udu Youth Council have appealed to the hoodlums to release the victim without further delay, describing the spate of kidnapping within the as worrisome.

The youths in a statement signed by its President, Mr Otito Yembra, and three others said, “The abduction of Chief Sakpra’s wife was not only a cowardly act by desperate characters that seek to profit from their criminal conduct, but also a sore reminder of the growing resurgence of criminality as it concerns the despicable and anti-social kidnapping industry in Urhobo land and Udu in particular.

“We join friends, family and other well-meaning Nigerians in calling on the abductors of the respected Chief Mrs Theresa Sakpra to immediately release her unconditionally and unhurt on humanitarian ground. We are also calling on the security agencies to do their utmost to find Chief Mrs Theresa Sakpra without any further delay so as to reunite her with her family.”

The spokesman of the Delta State Police Command, DSC Andrew Aniamaka, said the command had not been briefed of the incident.
