He was supposed to read the news on radio this morning but of course could not anymore because of the kidnapping.

He is not a politician or involved in any controversy. He is such an easygoing guy.

So why should something like this happen to him? Could it be a mistaken identity? No one knows.

His phone number has been switched off since and the kidnappers have not gotten in touch yet. It is really unfortunate,” a source close to him said.

Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Irene Ugbo, confirmed the incident.

We are aware of it and we are working on it,” she said.
