Senator Sylvester Ayodele Arise has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen on Sunday while travelling along Okene – Lokoja Road in Kogi State.

Senator Arise was a Nigerian senator who represents the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State but later defected to the All Progressives Congress [APC].

Arise was elected to the National Senate for the Ekiti North constituency in 2007 and was appointed to committees on Local and Foreign Debts, Banking, Insurance & Other Financial Institutions.

In July 2009 a court upheld the verdict of the Ekiti State Election Petitions Tribunal, which voided Arise’s election after a petition had been filed by the Action Congress candidate, Mr. Olubunmi Adetunmbi, who alleged substantial non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2006.

Elombah.com gathered that the kidnappers have gotten in touch with his family demanding a ransom of N80 million.
