Gun Men Abduct Campaign Director Of APC House Of Reps Candidate

Monday Aighobahi, the Director General of the campaign organization of the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate for the Ovia Federal Constituency of Edo State, Dennis Idahosa, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen. Dennis Idahosa stated that Monday Aighobahi was at Ofosu, Ogbogui Ward to campaign for votes ahead of the 2019 general elections when he was abducted.

According to his words;

“I was at the rally at Ofosu with him and left shortly after for other places in continuation of my campaign.

“He was left behind to sort some things out, after which he was to join us at another campaign location afterward,” he narrated.

Dennis Idahosa, a former council chairman, alleged that the abduction was politically motivated.

According to his words;

“Politically, Monday Aighobahi has a stronghold on the ward and my opponent knows this. I am not out to see bloodshed; so, I will urge all to go about the election in a very peaceful way.

“While urging the abductors to release their captive unconditionally, I appeal to my supporters and the people of Ovia to remain calm,” he said. 

However, the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, through press briefing has stated that he was yet to be briefed on the incident but promised to verify from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the closest division.
