Gunmen kidnapped Parents of Local Government Chairman in Bayelsa

 Unknown gunmen have kidnapped the parents of the Chairman of Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The Kidnapped parents, Mr Festus Ibegu and Mrs.Ebiye Ibegu were abducted at their residence last night at Oloibiri by the gunmen while relaxing at home.

The gunmen invaded the area with a speed boat and shot sporadically to scare any intruder.

The kidnappers escaped with their victims by passing through Oloibiri water ways to an unknown destination.

This is coming barely a week after the kidnapped mother of the Speaker of the State House of Assembly,Betinah Benson, was released by gunmen after the payment of a ransom.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction of the Chairman's parents whose whereabout are unknown.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state,Fidelis Odunna who confirmed the incident says a Police crack team and Intelligence Unit have been dispatched to the area to track down the kidnappers.
