Gunmen abduct Edo PDP chairman Tony Aziegbemi

Suspected kidnappers have abducted the chairman of the Edo State People Democratic Party, Tony Aziegbemi, along Idaro Street, off Country Home Road, Benin, Edo State.

Aziegbemi was reportedly abducted around 11 pm on Friday.

According to reports, the Edo PDP chairman was said to have left a meeting at the Government House and was going home in his vehicle when he was kidnapped in the presence of his driver who was attempting to climb a speed breaker.

Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, who confirmed the incident says the case falls under the New Etete Police Division.

Nwabuzor said, ” It is confirmed. The case is in the jurisdiction of the New Etete Police Division, also known as Godwin Abbe Police Station, which is where it happened.

“The Commissioner of Police has given a marching order to the tactical teams of operatives to go after the gunmen and we pray that by the grace of God, we will be able to rescue him unhurt”.

His kidnap came less than a month after the party conducted its governorship primary, which produced Asue Ighodalo as the candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming September 21, 2024 governorship election.
