by on June 5, 2017
The wife of the Delta State Commissioner for Special Duties in the Governor’s Office, Mrs. Theresa Sakpra, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen along Delta Steel Com­pany (DSC) Expressway in Udu Local Government Area while she was return­ing from her store at about 6.30pm.
Sakpra was abducted af­ter dropping off her salesgirl when her captors blocked her vehicle at Cross and Stop Junction in Udu and was whisked to an un­known destination.
A police source reported at the week­end that, “the victim was whisked to an unknown destination by the hood­lums on her way home after dropping one of her sales girls along the expressway.
According to the source, “the hoodlums went away with the victim in her car which was recovered the following day along the Uvwiamughe-Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Gov­ernment Area”.
Udu youths under the aegis of Udu Youth Coun­cil (UYC) have appealed to the kidnappers to release Mrs. Sakpra unhurt, just as they described the rate of kidnapping in the area as alarming. “We are also call­ing on the security agencies to do their utmost to find Mrs. Sakpra without any further delay so as to re­unite her with her family.”
Mr. Otito Yembra, pres­ident of the group in said: “The abduction of Chief Sakpra’s wife was not only a cowardly act by desper­ate characters that seek to profit from their criminal conduct, but also a sore re­minder of the growing re­surgence of criminality as it concerns the despicable and anti-social kidnapping industry in Urhobo land and Udu in particular.”
