Gunmen Demand N50m Ransom To Secure Release Of Four Ekiti Farmers

Unknown gunmen have abducted the 80-year-old mother of the Secretary to Bayelsa State Government (SSG), Rt. Hon. Konbowei Friday Benson, Betinah.

It was gathered that the gunmen dressed in military uniform abducted the woman at about 10 pm on Tuesday at her residence at the old legislative quarters in Yenagoa, the state capital.

It has not to be disclosed if the kidnappers have reached out to the affected family as of the time of filing the report.

The son of the abducted woman before his appointment by Governor Douye Diri as the Secretary to Bayelsa State Government in February 2020, was a two-term Speaker of the State House of Assembly and a PDP governorship aspirant during the 2019 gubernatorial poll in the state.

Mr Benson is yet to release a statement on the abduction of his mother.
