Suspected kidnappers have abducted Mr Ugbo Iyiriaro, a member of the People Democratic Party, PDP, along Benin-Abraka road between Ugo and Ugboko community, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State.
SNEHTV gathered that the victim had left Benin on Tuesday to attend to an issue of urgent importance but the journey was however aborted halfway.
The kidnappers have since contacted relatives of the victim and demanded N20 million as ransom.
As at the time of filing this report, phone calls to the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, SP Bello Kontongs, were unanswered.
