Breaking: Stakeholders accuse lawmaker of stage-managing own kidnap

A major political crisis may be brewing in Edjeba Ward in Warri South Local Government Area, Delta State following the alleged stagemanaged kidnap of the member representing Edjeba ward in Warri South Legislative Arm, Hon. Marcus Udoyo.

Hon. Udoyo who was purportedly abducted Thursday September 7 at Edjeba by unknown persons was reportedly found by the police at Kiagbodo today, Sunday September 10 in the evening following a tip off from the occupant of the house he allegedly hid himself.

A councillorship aspirant, Comrade Patrick Oghonemu and another political leader in Edjeba alleged that the purported kidnap of Hon. Udoyo was personally arranged to frustrate the councillorship ambition of his rivals in the forthcoming Delta State Local Government election, an allegation that could not be substantiated as at the time of this scoop.

A political associate of Hon. Udoyo who spoke on condition of anonymity denied the allegation that the lawmaker arranged his kidnap.

Meanwhile, the abducted lawmaker is said to be in custody of soldiers in an unknown destination as at the time of this report, even as some political stakeholders in Edjeba are pleading with the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Zanna Ibrahim to launch a fool scale inquest into the alleged kidnap so as to save them from undue harassment by security details.

When Fresh Angle International tried to speak with Hon. Marcus Udoyo at exactly 8:30pm Sunday September 10, his mobile phone number was switched off as policemen that went to rescue him were allegedly denied access.
