The Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the Edo State Deputy Governor, Comrade Kelly Odaro, was at the weekend kidnapped in Benin, the state capital.
Odaro was on his way home from the Nigeria Union of Journalist (NUJ) Secretariat on Saturday when the incident occurred.
According to his wife, Odaro left the Press Centre at 6:30pm and was abducted near their home in the Ikpoba Hill, on the outskirts of Benin, by two men who rode on a motorcycle.
Mrs. Odaro said: “He usually phones me when he is close to the house, so that we can come downstairs to open the gate for him. But I was surprised when people on our street came to call me that my husband had been kidnapped very close to our house by gunmen.
“When I got to where he was abducted, the doors of his car were open and the key was in the ignition. The helmets his abductors wore were by the car and my husband’s shoe was on the ground, but they went away with his phone.”
Yesterday around 6pm, the kidnappers contacted Mrs. Odaro and demanded N20 million ransom.
Police spokesman Anthony Airhuoyo confirmed the incident.
Before his appointment, Odaro was a lecturer at the Auchi Polytechnic.
