Ex-President Jonathan’s uncle kidnapped

Former President Goodluck Jonathan

Armed kidnappers on Tuesday abducted 72-year-old Inegite Jonathan, an uncle and foster father to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The septuagenarian was once kidnapped on February 28, 2014 and later rescued by security forces at Akipli community in Ogbia on March 10, 2014.

Mr. Jonathan was reportedly kidnapped at 10pm on Tuesday at his residence in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

A relation of the victim, Oru Solomon, confirmed the abduction, appealing to the kidnappers to free the man in
​because of his old age.

The spokes​person for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Asini Butswat, also confirmed the incident, saying the police were trailing the kidnappers.

The state governor, Seriake Dickson, had in his first tenure in office signed the anti​-​kidnapping law, prescribing death sentence for kidnapping.

No conviction ​has ​yet ​been ​made since the introduction of the law, while the crime flourishes in the region.

    We must hold Odua people responsible if anything happens to Pa Jonathan. Omo Odua are the people inciting kidnappers, polluters, and Buhari to mistreat our people.

    • TrueNja

      Na Odua people kidnapped him in February 2014? Ironically, you goats and rats from the creek cannot survive without Odua people. Odua son, OBJ made your imbecile Jonathan to become the president of Nigeria. Also, few that are educated among you lazy goats enjoyed Awo’s free education in the 50s and 60s. May gods of Oduduwa finish all of you ungrateful souls.

        Jonathan should provide proper security for his close relations, this may be a costly oversight.

          Aisha we are praying that kidnappers leave the poor man alone. He is not a government man and may not have benefited anything from the corrupt PDP and APC politics.

          • aisha ani

            It is true, may God Facilitate an immediate release for the man. Amen!

    The chicken has finally come home to roost. Kidnapping is no longer a poor man’s headache. About time the rich and famous began to swallow the bitter pill for the poor man’s agonizing headache they left to fester despite years of public outcry for the govt to step up to the plate.

    Kidnapping is not stealing, stealing is not corruption, corruption is not dasukigate.
