Monday Aighobahi, the Director General of the campaign organization of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the Ovia Federal Constituency of Edo, Dennis Idahosa, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
Idahosa said Aighobahi was at Ofosu, Ogbogui Ward to canvass for votes ahead of the 2019 elections when he was abducted.
“I was at the rally at Ofosu with him and left shortly after for other places in continuation of my campaign.
“He was left behind to sort some things out, after which he was to join us at another campaign location afterward,” he narrated.
Idahosa, a former council chairman, alleged that the abduction was politically motivated.
“Politically, Aighobahi has a strong hold on the ward and my opponent knows this. I am not out to see bloodshed; so, I will urge all to go about the election in a very peaceful way.
“While urging the abductors to release their captive unconditionally, I appeal to my supporters and the people of Ovia to remain calm,” he said.
