UGHELLI—A staff of the Nigerian Gas Company, NGC, was last weekend abducted around the popular post office roundabout, Ughelli in Delta State.
Confirming the incident, a senior police officer at Ughelli Division ‘A’ police station who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Vanguard that despite the incident occurring over the weekend, the matter was only formally reported at the division yesterday morning.
The abduction of the NGC staff, identified as Mr. Emeka Eziako, is coming three days after an Ughelli-based businessman was abducted on his way home from work.
Though the management of NGC could not be reached for comments, a newspaper vendor at the scene of the incident told Vanguard that the victim was abducted after he had purchased some compact discs at a store by the roundabout.
According to the vendor who spoke on anonymity, the victim was whisked away in his Toyota car to an unknown destination by his abductors.
