It was clear whether the family of the victim had agreed terms with them.
THE INK reporter was however informed that the kidnappers had earlier targeted the mother to a former council secretary of Ukanafun Local Government council NNE Umoh whose son Hon. Ubokobong Umoh once served as the council scribe but missed the target as the old woman as at the time the hoodlums strike was not at home.
Many sources say failure to pick Nne Umoh led to the kidnappers redirecting their search engine that leading to the abduction of the ward Secretary who hails from the same community with the former council secretary.
It could be recall that four pupils of Nsehe primary school were abducted last week at the school premises by unknown gunmen. The victims till date are yet to regain freedom.
The state police public relations officer , DSP Odiko MacDon Ogbeche could not be reached for comments on the matter but a police source from the local government hinted THE INK reporter that they are aware of the incident and added that security operatives are currently investigating the matter and shall get to the roots of it.
