Gunmen believed to be kidnappers allegedly adopted the wife and daughter of the chairman of Aniocha South Local Government Area in Delta State.
Confirming the report, the acting state police command spokesman, Mr Charles Muka, a deputy superintendent of police (DSP), said that the victims were whisked away after the criminals stormed the Agidisei Ogwashi-Uku residence of the local council chairman, Mr Isaac Anwuzia at about 7.30 am on Monday.
Muka, who gave the name of the wife of the council boss as 32-year old Favour Ifeoma and her daughter, Goodness Anwuzia aged three years, said that the invaders took the victims away in “a Toyota Corolla car parked in the compound and drove to an unknown destination.”
The police spokesman, however, said that the police on receiving the distress call gave the criminals a hot chase, forcing them to abandon the victims.
Two of the suspected kidnappers were eventually arrested after fleeing into the bush, he disclosed.
