Disquiet as gunmen abduct LG Chairman’s father in Bayelsa

Eighty-year-old father of Sagbama local council Chairman, Pa Napoleon Alale, has been kidnapped in his home town of Agbere community by unknown gunmen. 

A statement released by the Press Secretary to the chairman Dr Nikade Anderson on Friday revealed that the octogenarian was whisked away from his country home residence at about 12 midnight on Friday.

According to available reports, the gunmen invaded Agbere community and shot sporadically to scare off residents, while one vigilante member on guard duty was shot by the assailants. 

The kidnappers of Pa Napoleon Alale reportedly escaped in a boat through the Nun River to an unknown destination, and are yet to make contact with the family members of the SALGA Chairman.

It was learnt that the vigilante member who sustained severe gunshot injuries has been rushed to a nearby hospital, and is said to be in a critical condition.
