During an heavy rainfall on Monday, residents of Graceland Estate in Okpanan, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State, experienced an attack from a group of hoodlums, who were suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
It was gathered that the hoodlums kidnapped one Mr. Joseph after forcing his wife to cook jollof rice for them. The wife, simply identified as Mrs. Joseph said the abductors came into their apartment through the window, they had a gun and ordered that the door was opened.
She further stated “They brought out my husband and ask him to sleep in the rain and I was taken inside to prepare rice for them, which I did and packed it into a flask before taking my husband and valuables away”.
The Divisional police district of Okpanan could not interfere into the matter immediately. But the incident was confirmed and efforts to recuse the victim are being made.
