2 escape as Herdsmen kidnap baby, 2 others, demand N 15m

A baby and two persons have been abducted by gunmen who have laid siege to Oviri-Ogor/Okpavuerhe Olomu road.

Nigeriacrime.com learned that two others escaped with various injuries, as the gunmen are demanding N15 Million ransom.

This was revealed by security sources who rescued the two persons.

According to the source, On Sunday night, son of Agbazor Community Otota (Famous Ahwotu) called me at about 2 am that he got a distress call from the father that they escaped kidnapping. I asked him where his father was, he said he was in Oviri-Ogor bush.

“I quickly mobilized my men and rushed there, luckily for us, we saw him and the Vice President General of Agbazor (Festus Eghaghara) bleeding seriously from injuries.

“They were returning from Oviri-Ogor where they had gone to pay a visit to one Mr. Shina, an Urhobo musician who played for them the previous week who was also attacked on that road while returning home.

“They narrated that they ran into the ambush on the sharp bend on the road where the herdsmen had blocked the road with woods. That as they fell, the Herdsmen pounced on them, cutting them and shooting sporadically.

“That they had kidnapped a man and a lady with a little baby before and left the Keke. As they were taking them into the bush, they both struggled and escaped but the herdsmen made away with the woman and the lady. So I called the Police at Otu-Jeremi and took them there. Swiftly the police got into action and secured a police report for them to be taken to Jeremi General Hospital where they were treated.

“I later found out that the kidnapped man was from Okpavuerhe community, his name is Urhie Ayefere. That last week the herdsmen had also attacked a hunter, John Oboro from the same community and collected his gun and phone, it was this man’s phone they used to call the victim’s family demanding N15 million on Monday. I don’t know the identity of the woman till now.

“Same herdsmen had kidnapped a pastor and a woman with a baby two weeks ago on the same road and collected a huge ransom. Some days ago, while on patrol, we had an encounter with some herdsmen too between Akperhe and Ovwodokpkpor.

“Immediately we were approaching, they released their cows into the road to block us. So we fired a warning shot and they ran into the bush, they left one sack, when we checked, we saw these equipment used for cutting finger nails.

“We gathered that they are using these guys cutting nails to gather information for their nefarious activities.” He stated.

Contact to confirm the incidence Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Bright Edafe did not respond to text messages sent to him as at press time.
