Gunmen have kidnapped the chairman of Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State, Philemon Kingoli, on Wednesday along the Peter Odili Road axis of Port Harcourt, the State capital.
It was gathered that the kidnappers are yet to make any contact nor demand any ransom to free the council chairman.
The Rivers State Police Command spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni, who confirmed Kingoli’s kidnap on Thursday morning, said everything was being done to ensure his early release.
Omoni also disclosed that two persons were shot dead on Wednesday night between Victoria and Bende street in the old Port Harcourt township in what is suspected to be a cult attack.
The police spokesman said he was yet to get details of the killings in the old Port Harcourt township from the Divisional Police Officer.
